The evening passes fast awayA
'Tis almost time to restB
What thoughts has left the vanished dayA
What feelings in thy breastB
-
The vanished day It leaves a senseC
Of labour hardly doneD
Of little gained with vast expenseC
A sense of grief aloneE
-
Time stands before the door of DeathF
Upbraiding bitterlyG
And Conscience with exhaustless breathF
Pours black reproach on meG
-
And though I've said that Conscience liesH
And Time should Fate condemnI
Still sad Repentance clouds my eyesH
And makes me yield to themI
-
Then art thou glad to seek reposeJ
Art glad to leave the seaG
And anchor all thy weary woesJ
In calm EternityG
-
Nothing regrets to see thee goK
Not one voice sobs' farewell '-
And where thy heart has suffered soK
Canst thou desire to dwellL
-
Alas the countless links are strongM
That bind us to our clayA
The loving spirit lingers longM
And would not pass awayA
-
And rest is sweet when laurelled fameN
Will crown the soldier's crestB
But a brave heart with a tarnished nameN
Would rather fight than restB
-
Well thou hast fought for many a yearO
Hast fought thy whole life throughP
Hast humbled Falsehood trampled FearO
What is there left to doP
-
'Tis true this arm has hotly strivenD
Has dared what few would dareQ
Much have I done and freely givenD
But little learnt to bearQ
-
Look on the grave where thou must sleepR
Thy last and strongest foeK
It is endurance not to weepR
If that repose seem woeK
-
The long war closing in defeatS
Defeat serenely borneT
Thy midnight rest may still be sweetS
And break in glorious mornT
