37a. Ester

1. Young ladies, all attention give, You that in wicked pleasures live; One of your sex, the other day, Was called by death’s cold hand away. 2. This lesson she has left for you, To teach the careless what to do; To seek Jehovah while you live, And everlasting honors give. 3. Her honored mother she addressed, While tears were streaming down her breast; She grasped her tender hands and said, “Remember me when I am dead.” 4. She called her father to her bed, And thus, in dying anguish said: “My days on earth are at an end, My soul is summoned to attend. 5. “Before Jehovah’s awful bar, To hear my awful sentence there; And now, dear father, do repent, And read the holy Testament.”
