Best Prolife Verse from a Old Hymn

I thought this was a grand verse when we sang it Sunday, only to discover it's by Alexander Pope, 1712. That's cheating.

See a long race thy spacious courts adorn;
see future sons and daughters, yet unborn,
in crowding ranks on every side arise
demanding life, impatient for the skies.

The tune is stirring, you'll probably recognize it, though the first few notes on the midi site are an intro flourish, and kinda confusing therefore. Hear the hymn here. Say that five times fast.
