"ADIEU, farewell earth's bliss,/ This world uncertain is:/ Fond are life's lustful joys/ Death proves them all but toys./ None from his darts can fly:/ I am sick, I must die/ Lord have mercy on us!"

"The naked we have not clothed,/ The hungry we have not fed,/ The women degraded and outcast,/ The children crying for bread!/ Vanity, sloth and falsehood,/ Luxury, greed and fear,/ Help, Lord, to cast them behind us,/ Now that Thy Word is clear."
