To-morrow We May Be Placed
Poet: J.J. Thorne


Life decays. as a shadow fades,
And death we must obey;
To-morrow we may be
Placed in clay.

Life is precious, love is sweet;
But these pleasures must decay.
To-morrow we may be
Placed in clay.

Let our footprints prove our honor
From pious steps day by day,
To-morrow we may be
Placed in clay.

We should to our duty haste
And our moments not delay
To-morrow we may be
Placed in clay.

Let our deeds compound alone a love
To anoint our heads when old and gray,
To-morrow we may be
Placed in clay.

We should seek good examples
To our children lay.
To-morrow we may be
Placed in clay.

An honest and upright spirit
Avoids sorrow and dismay,
To-morrow we may be
Placed in clay.

If our conscience be our guide,
Truth and honesty we may say,
To-morrow we may be
Placed in clay.

Let not lies and malice
An evil heart betray,
To-morrow we may be
Placed in clay.

The sting of death ends our lives,
A debt we all must pay.
To-morrow we may be
Placed in clay.

Jesus bore our pain and burden,
Repentance if he pay,
To-morrow we may be
Placed in clay.
