For tho' from out our, bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
1" Crossing the Bar was written in my father's eighty-first year, on a day in October....
"I said, That is the crown of your life's work ;' he answered, 'It came in a moment.' He explained the 'Pilot' as That Divine and Unseen Who is always guiding us.'
"A few days before his death he said to me; Mind you put Crossing the Bar at the end of ail editions of my poems." (Life of Tennyson, II., 367.)
