1. Young man, indulge thy passion,
And lavish out thy youth
In every sinful fashion,
And don't regard the truth;
Nor fear God's threatening ensigns,
But what you list, that do;
But know that this is seed time,
There comes a harvest too.

2. When God shall send his angels
To reap his harvest down,
The tares he'll bind in bundles,
And flames shall clasp them round;
The pit will close upon them,
Shut up in keen despair,
And not a ray of sunbeam
Shall ever reach them there!

 

3. Or are you at agreement,
In league with death and hell,
And by thy great achievements
Are sure that all is well?
If you, like God, can thunder,
And hast the keys of hell,
I’ll own we need not wonder
If all at last is well.

4. But yet your glass is running,
And vengeance yet doth wait.
But soon the day is coming,
When it will be too late;
The jubilee is sounding,
Then don't be found, at last,
God’s Holy Spirit wounding,
and you in darkness cast.

 

5. Wisdom has spread her table,
A dying Savior’s love,
The feast is not a fable,
By coming we may prove;
It leads to living fountains
Of overflowing grace.
To Zion’s fragrant mountains,
Where God unveils his face.

6. Then come receive instruction,
Ye children, and be wise,
Before the threatening storm comes
And sweeps away your lives,
Lest you have this lamenting,
When in a damned state,
I have delayed repenting,
And now it is too late.
