...but I think it is so beautiful, and its music is downright haunting:
What earthly joy remains untouched by grief?
What glory stands forever on the earth?
Frail shadows - all, delusive dreams;
Which death will one day sweep away.
But in the light of Your countenance, O Christ,
And in the enjoyment of Your beauty,
Give rest to those whom You have chosen and taken
For You are the Lover of mankind.
--St. John of Damascus, Friday Evening Aposticha Verse
Isn't that just beautiful with the beauty of truth itself?
