There is life above
Unmeasured by the flight of years,
And all that life is love

"The stars shall fade, the sun himself Grow dim with age and nature sink in years, But thou shall flourish in immortal youth, Unhurt amist the wars of elements, The wrecks of matter, and the crust of world's. (John Toppass, minister)
