“But be on your guard so that your hearts are not weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of this life, and that day close down upon you suddenly like a trap.
[Luke 21:34 NET]
The world employs its various snares,
Of hopes and pleasures, pains and cares,
And chain’d to earth I lie:
When shall my fetter’d powers be free,
And leave these seats of vanity,
And upward learn to fly?
