Remember thy Creator

In youth’s bright, sunny day;

Ere age shall come with sorrow,

And take thy joys away.

=====

Ere sun and moon be darkened,

And stars forbear to shine;

Ere clouds of doubt shall hover

And cares distract thy min’–

=====

The strong shall bow themselves

The mighty and the great

The voice of joy be silenced

And all be desolate,

=====

For when the cord is loosed

And broke the golden bowl,

Then dust to dust returneth

To God the living soul.
