Lyrics

Remember O thou man, thy time is spent,
how thou art dead and gone,
for our sake God sent His Son,
Repent, that this for us is done.

Remember O thou man, that Adam's fall
from heaven to hell,
condemned us ever to dwell,
in darkness there perpetual.

Remember O thou man
God's go,Odness, And the promise made,
Our flesh to take, our sin to pay,
Remember and be not afraid.
