That Vapor, Life

By Rob Morris

Life is a vapor, how brief is its stay!
Vanishing, vanishing, passing away
Life is a flower that springs in the morn,
Fading, O, fading, no more to return
Life is an arrow, how swift is its flight,
Life is the rose tint that fades into night
Lord, may our lives in Thy service be given,
Fading on earth, but immortal in Heaven.
Teach us the worth of the vanishing time,
Make every life, in its purpose, sublime
Virtue and innocence, charity's dower,
Merciful Father, bestow us with power
Patient and strong to endure to the end,
Hopeful and faithful and true to each friend
Lord, may our lives in Thy service be given,
Fading on earth, but immortal in Heaven.

Just wanted to say that I got the ring - and it's the most beautiful ring I've seen. Thank you and keep up the good work.
