Read these final lines from Alfred, Lord Tennyson's "Crossing the Bar."
"For though 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."

With which of these does Tennyson conclude his poem?
a. the wish that he will meet God when he dies (correct choice)
b. the wish that his sea voyage will be a safe one
c. the longing that the sea will somehow return his love
d. the hope that his love awaits him at the end of his voyage (incorrect choice)

While taking the test, I chose answer D, but the correct answer is A. I would like to know why this is. Can someone please help?
