So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. ~ 1 Corinthians 15:54

I’ll meet you in the morning with a “How do you do,”
And we’ll sit down by the river,
And with rapture auld acquaintance renew.
You’ll know me in the morning,
By the smiles that I wear,
When I meet you in the morning
In that city that is built foursquare.
