The Children’s Song
We hold our lives like lily flow’rs.
May we be pure as they and white,
May sunlight shine up on our hours,
And we be sweet in all men’s sight;
And when at last our winter nighs,
Oh may on earth our seeds we strew,
Which from the dust shall re-arise
To bloom in other flow’rs anew.
