"Sunset and evening star and one clear call for me; And may there be no moaning at the bar when I put out to sea. Twiling and evening bell and after that hte dark; And may there be no sadness or farewell when I at last embark. For tho' from out othe bourn of time and place The floods may bear me far; I hope to see my pilot face to face when I have crossed the bar."
