English Poetry I: From Chaucer to Gray.
The Harvard Classics. 1909–14.
Sir Walter Raleigh
49. VersesFound in His Bible in the Gate-House at Westminster. Said to Have Been Written the Night before His Death
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,
Shuts up the story of our days;
But from this earth, this grave, this dust,
My God shall raise me up, I trust.
