1 Vain man thy fond pursuits forbear;
Repent; thy end is nigh,
Death at the farthest can't be far;
Oh, think before thou die!

2 Reflect, thou hast a soul to save,
Thy sins how high they mount!
What are thy hopes beyond thy grave?
How stands that dark account!

3 Death enters, and there's no defense,
His time there's none can tell,
He'll in a moment call thee hence,
To heaven or to hell.

4 Thy flesh, perhaps thy chiefest care,
Shall crawling worms consume,
But ah, destruction stops not there;
Sin kills beyond the tomb!

5 Today, the gospel calls, today:
Sinners, it speaks to you;
Let every one forsake his way,
And mercy will ensue,

6 Rich mercy,dearly bought with blood,
How vile soe'er he be,
Abundant pardon, peace with God;
All given entirely free.
