UPON A PASSING BELL, by            
First Line: Hark, how the passing bell
Last Line: This bell bids thee beware!
Subject(s): Bells; Farewell; Parting

HARK, how the Passing Bell
Rings out thy neighbour's knell,
And thou for want of wit
Or grace, ne'er think'st on it;
Because thou yet art well.

Fool! in two days or three,
The same may ring for thee!
For Death's impartial dart
Will surely hit thy heart!
He will not take a fee!

Since, then, he will not spare,
See thou thyself prepare,
Against that dreadful day,
When thou shalt turn to clay!
This Bell bids thee Beware!
