To live in hearts we leave behind
Is not to die.
~Thomas Campbell, “Hallowed Ground”
You placed the earth on its foundations.
It can never be moved.
You covered it with the oceans like a blanket.
The waters covered the mountains.
But you commanded the waters, and they ran away.
At the sound of your thunder they rushed off.
They flowed down the mountains.
They went into the valleys.
They went to the place you appointed for them.
– Psalm 104:5-8 (New International Reader’s Version)
