Could live’—did live’—
Could die’—did die’—
Could smile upon the whole
Through faith in one he met not,
To introduce his soul.
Could go from scene familiar
To an untraversed spot’—
Could contemplate the journey
With unpuzzled heart’—
Such trust had one among us,
Among us not today’—
We who saw the launching
Never sailed the Bay!
