A BRIEF REFLECTION

A BRIEF REFLECTION FOR
EVERY DAY AND
EVERYWHERE

Think of your last end, O Man,
and you will never commit sin!

Life is short and death is sure;
The hour of death is obscure.

A soul you have, and only one;
If that be lost all hope is gone.

Waste no time, while time shall last,
for after death ‘tis ever past.

All-seeing God your judge will be,
And heaven or hell your destiny.

All earthly things will speed away,
Eternity alone will stay!

The only thing that has real value is
what I can carry with me to eternity.

In whatever you do remember your last days,
and you will never sin.
(Sir. 8, 36)
