The Crossing of the Bar

Crossing the Bar

Sunset and 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 of farewell,     

When I embark;  
For though from out our bourn of Time and Place     
The flood may bear me far, 
I hope to see my Pilot face to face     
When I have crost the bar.
