ATTEND, young friends, while I relate

The dangers you are in,

The evils that around you wait

While subject unto sin.

Although you flourish like the rose

While in its branches green;

Your sparkling eyes in death will close,

No more now to be seen.

In vain you'll mourn your days are past,

Alas! those days are gone,

And you will leave your friends at last

And never to return.

In silent shades you will lie down

Long in your graves to dwell;

Your friends will then stand weeping round,

And bid a long farewell.

Oh! come this moment and begin

While life's sweet moments last,

Turn to the Lord, forsake your sins,

And he'll forgive what's past.
