MANíS BIRTH DEATH AND JUDGEMENT




Nothing into this world we brought,
And nothing can we take away;
Oft be the themes of earnest thought,
Manís birth, manís death, manís judgement-day.


For each belongs to each of us;
Time past, time present, time to be,
To young and old, determine thus
The issues of eternity.


All are born poor, howeíer unlike,
Their lot through life; and all go down
Poor to the dust:óthe darts that strike
The slave, strike him who wears a crown.


That name which each on earth has borne,
Renowned, inglorious, or obscure,
Eíen from his gravestone shall be worn;
Nought under heaven can endure.


In the Lambís book of life alone,
The everlasting page records,
In open view before the throne,
The names of those who are the Lordís.


When on the volume of that book
While small and great are gathered round,
The judge of quick and dead shall look,
Be all our names unblotted found.
