Recitation Once in Persia reigned a king who upon his royal ring carved these words so true and wise Which when held before his eyes gave him counsel at a glance of his life of changing chance Solemn words and these are they: "Even this shall pass away". Trains of camels through the sand brought him gems from Samarkand Fleets of galleys through the sea brought him pearls to match with thee But he counted not his gain nor his treasure, mine or main "What is wealth? In the revel of his court, at the zenith of his sport When the palms of all his guests burned with clapping at his zest He among his figs and wine would cry, "Oh, loving friends of mine Pleasures may come, but they cannot stay, like even this shall pass away? The most beautiful woman ever seen was the bride he chose his queen Pillowed on their royal bed, whispering to her soul he said: "Though a bridegroom never pressed dearer bosom to his chest But mortal flesh must come to clay and even these shall pass away".

About Pass Away lyrics. Album Rockit Bob Wray , Jim Marsala. Kenny Buttrey.
I don't know if it's worse for us: For me, it's been an inner battle with myself, should I follow my husband or should he follow me as I am one year ahead. After a lot of thought during that relationship with a non-Mormon, I laid out exactly what struggles I was probably going to face: I was worried about my own faith. I know a non-Mormon guy who married a Mormon woman and has kept her beautiful and desirable, by encouraging her religious involvement, even though he avoided Mormonism himself. It's why TBMs are so bugged by people that leave the church. He came to be by my side as soon as he could. I used to be religious when I was a kid. Takes some getting use to. I was recently married to my husband in the Twin Falls, Idaho temple for time and all eternity.
