    Thou hast an house on high erect,
    Framed by that mighty Architect,
    With glory richly furnished,
    Stands permanent though this be fled.

    And time brings down what is both strong and tall.
    But plants new set to be eradicate,
    And buds new blown, to have so short a date,
    Is by his hand alone that guides nature and fate.
