Eva's Song (A Psalm Of Life) Songtext

Life is but an empty dream!
For the soul is dead that slumbers
And things are not just as they seem

Life is real! Life is earnest!
And the grave is not its goal
"Dust thou art, and dust return,"
Was not spoken of the soul

Not enjoyment, nor in sorrow
Is our destined end or way
But to act, that each tomorrow
Finds us farther than today

Art is long, and Time is fleeting
And our hearts, though stout and brave
Still, like muffled drums, are beating
Funeral marches to the grave

Trust no Future, however pleasant!
Let the dead Past bury its dead!
Act,--act in the living Present!
Heart within, and God overhead!
