"Requiem" (1925, published 1940), for voice and piano, from Two songs.
The text of "Requiem" by Stevenson:


Under the wide and starry sky,
Dig the grave and let me lie.
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.

This be the verse you grave for me:
Here he lies where he longed to be;
Home is the sailor, home from sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.

R.L. Stevenson
