• Even such isTime, 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 shall raise me up, I trust.

    Written the night before his death, and found in his Bible in the Gate-house at Westminster. V. B. Heltzel 'Ralegh's "Even such is time"' in 'Huntingdon Library Bulletin' no. 10 (October 1936) p. 185
