To the Sinners, to Make Much of Time

---I hope Robert Herrick will not sue me---

Gather ye sinners while ye may
             Old time is still a-flying
And this lamb that ye behold today
            Tomorrow will be a lion

The great big lie, the worldly riches
            Will never be fulfilling
Like the chasing of the wind
Vain is all your tilling

Come to Christ, the only Way
            Faith, hope and love will fill your morrow
Earthly wisdom is deceiving
And much knowledge brings much sorrow

Tarry not, but know thy Saviour
            before ‘tis late for day is spent;
Night will come with all its terror
            and His knocking forever end
