    Even Such Is Time
    Lines Written On The Eve Of His Execution
    by Sir Walter Raleigh (1552-1618)

    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 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.
