 Crossing the Bar,                    by Alfred, Lord Tennyson 

Sunset and an evening star, 

And one clear call for me                                                                 

And may there be no moaning of the bar, 

When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,   

Too full for sound and foam, 

When that which drew from out the boundless deep,   

Turns again home,

Twilight and evening bell, 

 And after that the dark!  

And may there be no sadness or farewell, 

When I embark;

for tho' from out our bourne of Time and  

PlaceThe flood may bear me far,

I hope to see my Pilot face to face 

When I have crost the bar.
