1 Know, ye that are of Adams race,
That God hath called you by his grace;
And has proclaimed his gospel loud,
For to give warning, to the proud.
2 Ye youthful virgins stop, and pause,
And think upon your Saviors laws;
Let not your life which God has lent,
Alone in vanity be spent.
3 Awake to thought! ye tender souls,
And think, alas! we are but fools,
To spend our time, which ends in strife,
And lose this glorious scene of life.
4 Your life to God must be resigned;
Your mind in Jesus be confined;
For word and action must agree,
If Jesus Christ shall set you free.
5 That servant form you must put on,
And think that Christ's before me gone,
He is the way, the truth, and life,
Therefore forsake this world of strife.
The Christian's duty, exhibited in a series of hymns, 1791
