Time's rapid wing finds here no rest,
But ever, ever onward flies;
And whether life with care is pressed,
Or with a thousand joys is blest,
Man hastens on until he dies.

But to the last, while life endures,
Hope lights him on in bright array,
And while the starry light allures,
Faith in his God to him assures,
That there will come a brighter day.
