don’t ever throw yourself away,
though you be fallen ever so low,
it is never too late to cry to God…

be what you seem to be, and seem to be what you are…
heaven and earth are threads of the same loom…
be what you seem to be, and seem to be what you really are…
the hands drop off, but the work goes on…

do all your work as though you had a thousand years on earth
and as if you knew you must die tomorrow…

be what you seem to be, and seem to be what you are…
heaven and earth are threads of the same loom…
be what you seem to be, and seem to be what you really are…
the hands drop off, but the work goes on…

don’t ever throw yourself away,
though you be fallen ever so low,
it is never too late to cry to God…
