Oh! Mortals! Time and tide waits for none
So never treat time that flees as fun
Life is short, love is long and so love all
Love knows not young or old and short or tall!
Life is short, death sneaks in at its sweet will
So, do things right, speak things kind, make life still
With peace and poise, joy and health all the time
Serving poor, helping old, be your pastime!
Beware life is precious, time is precious
Never waste life, lest sure it goes vicious
Fritter not life, waste not time, don’t compare
Pleasures the idle have that bring despair!
Sing in praise of timeless God and time full life
Lead life with grace to serve all and God sans strife!
