Volume IV. The Higher Life.  1904.
 
VII. Death: Immortality: Heaven
Lines found in his Bible in the Gate-house at Westminster
Sir Walter Raleigh (1554?–1618)
 
E’EN 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 wandered 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.
