Live while you live

Live while you live, the Epicure would say,
And seize the pleasures of the present day.
Live while you live, the sacred Preacher cries,
And give to God each moment that flies.
Lord, in my view, let both united be,
I live in pleasure if I live to thee.

–Philip Doddridge (1702 – 1751)
