As Children

As-Children-stanza-oneHappy are the days of little children
And in the hours of childish life
their feet doth dance the hours away.

As-Children-stanza-twoAnd yet there cometh a time when
they must put aside these things,
And she of womanly form and face
now dons the bridal veil
While he stands by in proud and manly grace.

As-Children-stanza-threeSo it is with every man, ~~~
That while he is born of the Flesh,
And as a small child
And he passeth through all of the
things of manhood

As-Children-stanza-fourYet he must return to the purity of
his childish form
Ere he enters the Kingdom of Heaven.
