When all is done and my last word is said And ye who loved me, mourn, "He is dead". Let no one weep, for fear that I should Know, And sorrow too that ye should sorrow so.
When all is done and in the oosing clay, Ye lay this cast-off hull of mine away, Pray not for me, for, after long despair, The quiet of the grave will be a prayer
When all is done, say not my day is oer, And that thro night, I seek a dimmer shore: I greet the dawn and not the setting sun,
When all is done.
