Insightful Poem about Death

I found a quote that the bishop used at the funeral that I really liked. Apparently, this was written while President Hinckley was at a funeral.

What is this thing that men call death,

This quiet passing in the night?

‘Tis not the end, but genesis

Of better worlds and greater light.

O God, touch Thou my aching heart,

And calm my troubled, haunting fears.

Let hope and faith, transcendent, pure,

Give strength and peace beyond my tears.
