And for the saving of our souls
Christ died upon the cross; We ne'er shall do for Jesus Christ
As he has done for us.
The life of man is but a span,
And cut down in its flower, We are here to-day and to-morrow are gone,
We are all dead in .an hour.
O pray teach your children, man,
The while that you are here; It will be better for your souls
When your corpse lies on the bier.
To-day you may be alive, dear man, Worth many a thousand pound;
To-morrow may be dead, dear man, And your body be laid under ground.
With one turf at your head, O man,
And another at your feet, Thy good deeds and thy bad, O man,
Will all together meet.
My song is done, I must be gone,
I can stay no longer here. God bless you all, both great and small,
And send you a happy new year !
