Lyrics: Elizabeth Carter

The sun that sets again shall gild the skies,
The faded plain reviving flow'rs shall grace;
But hopeless fall, no more on earth to rise,
The transitory forms of human race.
Thus, tho' relentless death should all destroy
That's form'd for mighty deeds, for love and joy;
And tho' to dust their mortal part we give,
Their fame, in triumph, shall through ages live.
