“Epitaph” a poem by Sir Walter Raleigh

Here’s a poem on our resurrection by the English explorer, soldier, spy, and poet Sir Walter Raleigh (1552-1618).

By Sir Walter Raleigh
Even such is time, which takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, and all we have,
And pays us but with age and dust,
Who in the dark and silent grave
When we have wandered all our ways
Shuts up the story of our days,
And from which earth, and grave, and dust
The Lord will raise me up, I trust.
