I would like to find out the composer or writer of these lines:

Forever they are fading Our Beautiful, Our Bright

They gladden us a while, Then pass away from sight

And that was the first verse! Pls can any one shade any light on it? Thanks.

The verse intrigued me , so having a few hours (not really) minutes to spare I did a search and all that came up was the verse on a Gravestone in America .

No idea still of the Author though, it is a lovely verse. The headstone read...

Forever they are fading/our beautiful, our bright/they gladden us a little while/then pass away from sight.

It was at this site..... No answers though apart from it being a Lutheran Church.

Question Author

Thank you very much for the answer. There is a second verse and it reads:

A little while we're parted
from those who love us best.
They gain the goal before us
and enter into rest.

Thanks again,
