PART VI.
WARNINGS AGAINST INTEMPERANCE AND ALL ITS CAUSES.
75                             6s.
1   THAT wine-cup ! touch it not I
Youth take thy hand away— Poverty fills it up,
With ruin and decay. Oh, youngster, heed thee well,
Ere thou hast quaffed a drop— The seeds of death are there,
Whose work thou canst not stop!
2  When in the wide world, youth,
Thou hold'st thy devious way, If from the path of truth,
Temptations lead astray— If urg'd to drain the glass.
With thoughtless, heedless men, Oh, as thou lov'st thyself,
Touch not the wine-cup then.
3  Should hours of darkness come,
And thy heart's purpose fail, Should life to thee seem vain,
And earth a dreary vale— Oh, to the voice of truth
Take heed, nor then be deaf, Shun, shun the wine-cup then,
It cannot give relief.
