The FOUR LAST THINGS
Life is short and death is sure
The hour of death remains obscure.
A soul you have, and only one,
if that be lost, all hope is gone.
Waste not time, while time shall last;
for after death 'tis ever past.
All-seeing God, your Judge will be,
and Heaven or Hell your destiny.
All earthly things will speed away,
Eternity, alone, will stay.
