Hymn/Song Information

THE BODY DIES THE SOUL SUFFERS NO DECAY




Time grows not old with length of years;
Changes he brings, but changes not;
New born each moment he appears;
We run our race, and are forgot.


Stars in perennial rounds return,
As from eternity they came,
And to eternity might burn;
We are not for one hour the same.


Spring flowers renew their glad perfume,
But ere a second spring they fly;
Our life is longer than their bloom,
Our bloom is sweeter,—yet we die.


Stars, like spring-flowers, shall pass away;
Time, like the stars, must case to roll:
We have what never can decay,—
Like flowers and stars and time,—a soul.


Lord God! when time shall end his flight,
Stars set and flowers revive no more;
May we behold thy face in light,
Thy love in Jesus Christ adore.
