Thoughts from the Twelfth Chapter of Ecclesiastes   1 comment

Remember thy Creator

In youth’s bright, sunny day;

Ere age shall come with sorrow,

And take thy joys away.


Ere sun and moon be darkened,

And stars forbear to shine;

Ere clouds of doubt shall hover

And cares distract thy min’–


The strong shall bow themselves

The mighty and the great

The voice of joy be silenced

And all be desolate,


For when the cord is loosed

And broke the golden bowl,

Then dust to dust returneth

To God the living soul.
