Representative Text

1 Nothing but leaves, no golden sheaves,
I’ve gathered on life’s way,
Now I am bro’t—how sad the tho’t—
To judgment’s awful day.

Lost! lost! eternally lost!
Heaven, can it b e!
Lost! lost! eternally lost!
Mercy no longer I see.

2 Nothing but leaves; my spirit cleaves
To life’s last hopeless ray;
On the dark shore that lies before,
I see no light of day. [Refrain]

3 Nothing but dross; the reeking cross,
It sheds no light on me;
Spending my life ‘mid sin and strife,
Refused I to be free. [Refrain]

4 Sowing the tares ‘mid earth’s sad cares,
Neglecting my dear Lord;
Taking my flight to darkest night,
I meet my just reward. [Refrain]
