   A SONG OF THE LIVING

Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.
I have sent up my gladness on wings, to be lost
in the blue of the sky.
I have run and leaped with the rain, I have taken
the wind to my breast.
My cheek like a drowsy child to the face of the
earth I have pressed.
Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.

I have kissed young Love on the lips, I have
heard his song to the end.
I have struck my hand like a seal in the loyal
hand of a friend.
I have known the peace of heaven, the comfort
of work done well.
I have longed for death in the darkness and risen
alive out of hell.
Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.

I gave a share of my soul to the world where
my course is run.
I know that another shall finish the task I must
leave undone.
I know that no flower, no flint was in vain on
the path I trod.
As one looks on a face through a window,
through life I have looked on God.
Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.
