Sorry for the extraneous "of" in the last line of the above.

I also like the last two lines on the chorus of Gordon Bok's "Turning Toward the Morning":

"If I had a thing to give you, I would tell you one more time:
The world is always turning toward the morning."

We have sung this at many funerals -- not for the departed, but for the grieving ones who have been left to carry on.

A favorite quatrain from tradition ("Dear Companion"):

Last night you were sweetly sleeping,
Dreaming in your sweet repose,
Whilst I, a poor boy broken-hearted,
Listened to the wind that blows.
