      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,

      For tho' from out our bourne
      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.

      - Tennyson
