1 Up and away, like the dew of the morning,
Soaring from earth to its home in the sun;
Thus would I pass from the earth and its toiling,
Only remember’d by what I have done.

Refrain:
Only remember’d, Only remember’d,
Only remember’d by what I have done.

2 Shall I be missed if another succeed me,
Reaping the fields I in spring-time have sown?
No, for the sower may pass from his labors,
Only remembered by what he has done. [Refrain]

3 Only the truth that in life I have spoken,
Only the seed that on earth I have sown;
These shall pass onward when I am forgotten,
Fruits of the harvest, and what I have done. [Refrain]

4 Oh! when the Saviour shall make up His jewels,
When the bright crowns of rejoicing are won,
Then will His faithful and weary disciples,
All be remember’d from what they have done. [Refrain]

Horatius Bonar was born at Edinburgh, in 1808. His education was obtained at the High School, and the University of his native city. He was ordained to the ministry, in 1837, and since then has been pastor at Kelso. In 1843, he joined the Free Church of Scotland. His reputation as a religious writer was first gained on the publication of the "Kelso Tracts," of which he was the author. He has also written many other prose works, some of which have had a very large circulation. Nor is he less favorably known as a religious poet and hymn-writer. The three series of "Hymns of Faith and Hope," have passed through several editions. --Annotations of the Hymnal, Charles Hutchins, M.A. 1872… Go to person page >
