A Quote by Philip Doddridge on day, god, pleasure, preachers, sacred, and present

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 as it flies. Lord, in my views, let both united be: I live in pleasure when I live to thee.

Philip Doddridge (1702 - 1751)
