Even such is time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with age and dust;

Who in the dark and silent grave,
When we have wandered all our ways,
Shuts up the story of our days.

But from this earth, this grave, this dust,
My God shall raise me up, I trust!

Sir Walter Raleigh 1554?-1618

Written the night before his death.
Found in his Bible in the Gate-house at Westminster.
