Hymn/Song Information

Like shadows gliding over the plain Or




Like shadows gliding o’er the plain,
Or clouds that roll successive on,
Man’s busy generations pass,
And while we gaze, their forms are gone.


“He lived,—he died;” behold the sum,
The abstract of the historian’s page!
Alike in God’s all-seeing eye,
The infant’s day, the patriach’s age.


O Father! in whose mighty hand
The boundless years and ages lie,
Teach us thy boon of life to prize,
And use the moments as they fly;


To crowd the narrow span of life
With wise designs and virtuous deeds;
So shall we wake from death’s dark night,
To share the glory that succeeds.
