Stanza Poetry Source by First Line
Young people all attention give,
And hear what I shall say;
I wish your souls with Christ to live,
In everlasting day.

Young people, all, attention give,, Stanza 1
Remember you are hastíning on
To deathís dark gloomy shade;
Your joys on earth will soon be gone,
Your flesh in dust be laid.

Young people, all, attention give,, Stanza 2
