BUDDHISTS HYMNS

AT THE GRAVE
 

How transient are things mortal!
    How restless is man's life!
But Peace stands at the portal
    Of Death, and ends all strife.

Life finds its consummation;
    Days end in evening gloom;
But souls, with life's cessation
    Sink not into the tomb.

The body falls to ashes,
    But spirit will not die;
In sacred memory-flashes
    The soul can death defy.

Life is a constant parting―
    One more the stream has crossed;
But think ye who stand smarting
    Of that which ne'er is lost.

The past can't be recovered,
    And yet it is not gone:
Love's ties can not be severed,
    Love's blessing will live on.

Our hearts for love are yearning;
    Tis love that life controls.
Dust is to dust returning,
    But souls remain with souls.

All rivers flowing, flowing
    Must reach the distant main;
The seeds which we are sowing
    Will ripen into grain.
