If one breath passes from thy life
Do not let it pass save joyfully
Beware ! for the profit from this earthly world
Is such existence that its passing passeth away


P 321

Life's every moment, yet thine to pass away,
Be sure with gladness and wine to pass away;
For lo! the usance of this world's capital, life,
Is still to dwindle and syne to pass away.

Th 751

If of this life one instant is left thee,
Let it not pass except in gaiety.
Beware ! for this world's capital is life
Which thus drawn on, soon passed away will be.
