Verse 1
Prepare O sinner to be wise
Do not wait until tomorrow
As long as you deride wisdom
The more hidden wisdom will be

Verse 2
Get ready to ask for mercy
Do not wait for until tomorrow
Before thy days on earth are o'er
Before this world's sunset arrives

Verse 3
Prepare, O sinner to return
Do not wait until tomorrow
So you do not become accursed
Before tomorrow's day begins

Verse 4
Prepare to receive a blessing
Do not wait until tomorrow
So that your lamp does not burn out
Before you begin a new life

Verse 5
Lord, make the sinner to repent
Rouse him from his foolish slumber
May he not kick against wisdom
And be slack concerning his doom
