O! Use thy moments as they flee
In aspect of eternity;
In acts abides the actor.
Eternal Truth when understood
Turns curse to bliss, the bad to good;
Make Truth thy life's great factor,
Glories of the realms transcendent.
The constant practicing of virtue strengthens the mental faculties, and he whose judgment stronger grows acts always right.
