38. Remember, sinful youth, you must die

1. Remember, sinful youth, you must die,
Remember, sinful youth, you must die.
Remember, sinful youth,
If you deny the truth,
Through vast eternity, you must die.

2. Uncertain are your days, here below,
Uncertain are your days, here below.
Uncertain are your days,
For God hath many ways
To bring you to your graves, here below.

3. The God that built the sky, great I Am,
The God that built the sky, great I Am.
The God that built the sky,
Hath said and cannot lie,
Impenitents shall die, and be damned.

4. Come then, my friends, don't you, I entreat,
Come then, my friends, don't you, I entreat.
Come then my friends, don’t you
Your sinful ways pursue,
Your precious souls undo, I entreat.

5. But to the Savior flee, 'scape for life,
But to the Savior flee, 'scape for life.
But to the Savior flee,
Lest death eternally
Shall be your destiny, 'scape for life.
