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 hast'ning on
To death's dark, gloomy shade;
Your joys on earth will soon be gone,
Your flesh in dust be laid.
