Our lives are like the rose,
Bursting forth then withering away.
They are like the wind,
Gushing about then lying calm.
But for you, my friend,
The final battle is over.
You have climbed the mountain,
You have walked the valley.
Rest now, my comrade
With all the warriors of battles past.
Lay down your sword and shield,
Put away the snorting horse called life.
Behind you is a great army—
They will fight for you.
In the sweetness of your memory,
They may conquer too.
Good-bye my friend, good-bye;
You have lived with faith.
Stand now before your Creator and God,
Receive your blessed reward.
