All Things Pass

mp3 and pdf sheet music
Dm D9 Dm Am Dm
Winter snow and summer sunshine;
Green to golden fading grass
Dm F C Dm
Autumn leaf and April flower
Bb Dm Am Dm
Seize the hour; all things pass
It's a truth as clear as crystal
Dm Bb Dm
And as hard as broken glass;
Dm Gm Dm
In this life the things you favor,
F Dm Am Dm
You should savor. All things pass
All of us will drink of suffering;
Heart and body fill that glass.
Grief may burn you like an ember
But remember; all things pass.
And the stars that seem eternal
As they burn consume their mass
Though the darkness they're defying
They are dying. All things pass
Take the joy that living hands you
Raise a toast and drain your glass.
Notice life's inspired invention
Pay attention. All things pass.
