Remember, Christian Soul, ...

... that thou hast this day, and every day of thy life, ...

God to glorify.     Jesus to imitate.     A soul to save.     A body to mortify.     Sins to repent of.     Virtues to acquire.     Hell to avoid.     Heaven to gain.     Eternity to prepare for.     Time to profit by.     Neighbours to edify.     The world to despise.     Devils to combat.     Passions to subdue.     Death, perhaps, to suffer.     Judgment to undergo.

This comes from St. Augustine's Prayer Book, a Book of Devotion for Members of the Episcopal Church.  It was complied and edited by the Rev. Loren Gavitt and the Rev. Archie Drake, and published by The Holy Cross Press, West Park, NY (11th ed.) in September 1959.
