Wells. Life, the Day of Grace. L. M.

1. Life is the time to serve the Lord,
The time t'insure the great reward;
And while the lamp holds out to burn,
The vilest sinner may return.

2. Life is the hour that God has given
To 'scape from hell and fly to heaven;
The day of grace and mortals may
Secure the blessings of the day.

3. The living know that they must die,
But all the dead forgotten lie;
Their memory and their sense is gone,
Alike unknowing and unknown.


4. Then what my thoughts design to do,
My hands with all your might pursue;
Since no device nor work is found,
Nor faith, nor hope, beneath the ground.

5. There are no acts of pardon passed
In the cold grave to which we haste;
But darkness, death, and long despair
Reign in eternal silence there.
