170. Tiden svinder

1 Tiden svinder,
Tiden rinder,
Tiden flyver hastig bort,
Tag dig vare
I din Fare,
Da bin Time er saa kort!
O du faar jo ei at vide,
Hvor din Død kan staa vaa Lur,
Tænk paa Evighed i Tide,
Om den ei skal vorde sur!

2 Hold dig færdig,
Reen og værdig
Til den store Bryllupsfest,
Til at være
Der i Ære
Jesu Brud og Himmel-Gjest!
Gud indbød dig, se at træde
Frem for ham med Bøn og Bod,
Tvæt dit synde-smitted Klæde
Hvidt i Lammets røde Blod!
