Sunset and evening Star,
And one clear call for me;
And may there be no moaning of the bar
when I put out to seas.
Bur such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound or foam, When that which drew from out the boudless deet
Thurs again home
Twilight and evenung bell,
And after the the dark;
And may there be no sadness of farwell
when I embark
Foth though from out our bourne of time and place
The flodd may bear me far.
I hope to meet my pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar
