This is the version in Sankey et al.'s Gospel Hymns Nos.1 to 6 Complete (1894, 1895, no. 534), with an altered set of lyrics of Horatius Bonar's original and the music by Sankey:

          ONLY REMEMBERED

1. Fading away like the stars in the morning,
    Losing their light in the glorious sun
    Thus would we pass from this earth and its toiling,
    Only remembered by what we have done.

    Refrain:
    Only remembered, only remembered,
    Only remembered by what we have done,
    Thus would we pass from this earth and its toiling,
    Only remembered by what we have done.

2. Shall we be miss'd tho' by others succeeded.
    Reaping the fields we in springtime have sown?
    No, for the sowers nay pass from their labors,
    Only remembered by what they have done.

3. Only the truth that in life we have spoken,
    Only the seed that on earth we have sown;
    These will pass onward when we are forgotten,
    Fruits of the harvest and what we have done.

4. Oh, when the Saviour shall make up His Jewels,
    When the bright crowns of rejoicing are won,
    Then shall His weary and faithful disciples,
    All be remembered by what they have done.
