Alfred Tennyson; music by Rani Arbo: arr. Crowe, Devine, Madden & Wilkes.

lyrics

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea.
When I put out to sea,
When I put out to sea
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home,
Turns again home,
Turns again home,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep .
Turns again for home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark,
When I embark,
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark.

For though from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar,
When I have crossed the bar,
When I have crossed the bar,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.
