Task of the Ages
Task of the ages
To thee our lives we give,
Pledged to the highest,
its servants we would live,
May we be strong and true
When darkness round us draws,
dauntless to dare and do in that great cause.[1] Cf. the maxim of Rabbi Tarfon in the Pirkei Avot 2.16, albeit without any expression of life after death.
