eXTReMe Tracker

Listen to this song using Rhapsody (Free for 14 Days)

Alas! How swift the moments fly!


Alas! how swift the moments fly!
How flash the years along!
Scarce here, yet gone already by,
The burden of a song.
See childhood, youth, and manhood pass,
And age, with furrowed brow;
Time wasóTime shall beódrain the glassó
But where in Time is now?

Time is the measure but of change;
No present hour is found;
The past, the future, fill the range
Of Timeís unceasing round.
Where, then is now? In realms above,
With Godís atoning Lamb,
In regions of eternal love,
Where sits enthroned I AM.

Then pilgrim, let thy joys and tears
On Time no longer lean;
But henceforth all thy hopes and fears
From earthís affections wean:
To God let votive accents rise;
With truth, with virtue, live;
So all the bliss that Time denies
Eternity shall give.
