V Child – That Which Has Been lyrics

That which hath been is now
And that which is to be
Has already been

And God requireth that which is past.
All go unto one place;
All are of the dust,
And all turn to dust again.

Who knows the spirit of man
That goeth upward,
And the spirit of the beast
That goeth downward to the earth?

I perceive that there is nothing better,
Than that a man should rejoice in his own works;
For that is his heritage:
For who shall bring him to see
What will happen after him?

Eat and drink, and enjoy the good
Eat and drink, and enjoy the good
Eat and drink, and enjoy the good
Of all his labour,
It is the gift
A gift, a gift, a gift
It is the gift
