Wesley noted that he completed this serious glee in 1822.
Lyrics: Elizabeth Carter

While every short-lived flower of sense
Destructive years consume,
Through friendship's fair enchanting walks
Unfading myrtles bloom.

Nor with the narrow bounds of time
The beauteous prospect ends;
But, lengthened through the vale of death,
To Paradise extends.
