MOON SHINES BRIGHT The moon shines bright and the stars give light A little before the day Our Lord, Our God, he called on us And bid us awake and pray! Awake, Awake! good people all Awake and you shall hear The Lord our God, died on the cross For us whom he loved so dear O fair, O fair Jerusalem, When shall I come to thee? When shall my sorrows have an end, Thy joy that I may see? The fields were green as green could be, When from His glorious seat, Our Lord, our God, he watered us, With His heavenly dew so sweet. And for the saving of our souls Christ died upon the cross, We ne'er shall do for Jesus Christ As he has done for us. The life of man is but a span, And cut down in its flower, We are here to-day, and to-morrow gone, We are all dead in an hour. O pray teach your children, man The while that you are here; It will be better for your souls, When your corpse lies on the bier. To-day you may be alive, dear man Worth many a thousand pound; To-morrow may be dead, dear man, And your body be laid under ground. With one turf at your head, O man, And another at your feet; Thy good deeds and thy bad, O man, Will all together meet. My song is done, I must be gone, I can stay no longer here; God bless you all, both great and small, And send you a happy new year! (Contributed by Frank DiSalle - December 2003)
