1. Tomorrow, Lord, is thine,

Lodged in thy sovereign hand,

And if its sun arise and shine,

It shines by thy command.

2. The present moment flies,

And bears our life away;

O! make thy servants truly wise,

That they may live to-day.

3. Since on this winged hour

Eternity is hung,

Waken, by thine almighty power,

The aged and the young.

4. One thing demands our care;

O! be it still pursued,

Lest, slighted once, the season fair

Should never be renewed.

5. To Jesus may we fly,

Swift as the morning light,

Lest life’s young golden beam should die

In sudden, endless night.
