Sleeping soundly?

(Horatius Bonar, "True Vigils")

The world at large is . . .
   thoroughly careless;
   sleeping soundly;
   dreaming its dreams of vanity;
   enjoying . . .
        sin,
        vanity,
        luxury,
        pleasure,
        gaiety.

Awake! sleep no more! Awake, lest
the flash of God's avenging sword
be the first thing that awakens you!
