    By Nebo’s lonely mountain,
  On this side Jordan’s wave,
In a vale in the land of Moab,
  There lies a lonely grave.
          The Burial of Moses.

    This was the truest warrior
  That ever buckled sword;
This the most gifted poet
  That ever breathed a word;
And never earth’s philosopher
  Traced with his golden pen
On the deathless page truths half so sage
  As he wrote down for men.
          The Burial of Moses.
