Litany of Remembering

For the deceased of Virginia Tech University.

In the rising of the sun and its going down
We remember them.
In the blowing of the wind and the chill of winter.
We remember them.
In the opening of buds and in the warmth of summer
We remember them.
In the rustling of leaves and the beauty of autumn
We remember them.
In the beginning of the year and when it ends
We remember them.
When we are weary and in need of strength
We remember them.
When we are lost and sick at heart
We remember them.
For as long as we live, they too shall live,
For they are not a part of us
We remember them.
They shall live forever in the communion of the saints,
In the arms of God
We remember them!

—Roland B. Gittelsohn, with minor additions
