Resurrection and Eternal Life.
Resurrection and Eternal Life.
18
Hie breve vivitur, hie breve plangitur.
Brief life is here our portion, Brief sorrow, short-liv'd care ;
The life that knows no ending, The tearless life is there.
O happy retribution !
Short toil, eternal rest; For mortals and for sinners
A mansion with the blest!
That we should look, poor wand'rers, To have our home on high !
That worms should seek for dwellings Beyond the starry sky !
To all one happy guerdon
Of one celestial grace : For all, for all, who mourn their fall,
Is one eternal place.
And martyrdom hath roses Upon that heavenly ground :
And white and virgin lilies For virgin souls abound.
There grief is turned to pleasure ;
Such pleasure, as below No human voice can utter,
No human heart can know
