My few revolving years,
How swift they glide away!
How short the term of life appears,
When past—but as a day!

A dark and cloudy day,
Clouded by grief and sin;
A host of enemies without,
Distressing fears within.

Lord, through another year
If Thou permit my stay,
With diligence may I pursue
The true and living way.
