Crossing the Bar
The Longest Johns Lyrics


Sunset and evening star
And one clear call for me
And may there be no moaning of the bar
When I put out to sea

When I put out to sea
When I put out to sea
And may there be no moaning of the bar
When I put out to sea
But such a tide as moving seems asleep
Too full for sound and foam
That which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home

Turns again home
Turns again home
That which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home

Twilight, and evening bell
And after that the dark
And may there be no sadness or farewell
When I embark

When I embark
When I embark
And may there be no sadness or farewell
When I embark

For tho' from out our borne of time and place
The flood may bare me far
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar

When I have crossed the bar
When I have crossed the bar
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar

When I have crossed the bar
When I have crossed the bar
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar

[Verse 1]
Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,

[Verse 2]
When I put out to sea,
When I put out to sea,
And may there be no moaning of the bar
When I put out to sea

[Verse 3]
But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
That which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

[Verse 4]
Turns again home,
Turns again home,
That which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home

[Verse 5]
Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

[Verse 6]
When I embark,
When I embark,
And may there be no sadness of farewell
When I embark

[Verse 7]
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
When I have crossed the bar.

[Verse 8]
When I have crossed the bar
When I have crossed the bar
I hope to see my pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar

[Verse 9]
When I have crossed the bar
When I have crossed the bar
I hope to see my pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

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
When I have crost the bar.

Lyrics are from a poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson.

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

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
When I have crost the bar.

I just copy and pasted these lyrics from Wikipedia for whoever may like them. Thanks to Jesse De Reu for stating that it's a poem by Lord Tennyson for me to find it easier!

Thank you all for making this. I want you all to know how much this song has touched my family. Recently I lost my grandfather, and Crossing the Bar was his favorite poem. It was read at his funeral and holds such significance to us. This father’s day I played it for my father; it wasn’t long before he, my brother, and myself were overcome with emotion. We toasted my father and our grandfather and had a good cry and a good laugh remembering our grandfather. Great music elicits emotion, and through your artistry you have truly brought myself and family happiness. Thank you for your work and do not stop doing what you all love.

My son passed at 10 days old this year and this was the first song that I played on the agonizing drive home.

Daddy misses you dearly Dallas❤️

Take care, Dylan. I've only just read your comment, but I hope things have become easier for you with time.

My condolences for your loss

A couple at our church went through the same experience recently. May God bless you with the peace that passes human understanding knowing that your young one is in the presence of the Pilot.

I'm so sorry Dylan. My prayers are with you and your family.

I wish he will come back for you in the future, my condolences, rip Dallas
