78. The Conclusion
  
EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust 
Our youth, our joys, our all we have, 
And pays us but with earth and dust; 
  Who in the dark and silent grave, 
When we have wander'd all our ways,         5
Shuts up the story of our days; 
But from this earth, this grave, this dust, 
My God shall raise me up, I trust.
