Into the gold of that unsetting sun! Homesick we are for thee, Calm Land beyond the Sea !
The Land beyond the Sea!
Why fadest thou in light?
Why art thou better seen towards night?
Dear Land! look always plain, look always bright,
That we may gaze on thee,
Calm Land beyond the Sea!
The Land beyond the Sea!
Sweet is thine endless rest,
But sweeter far that Father's Breast
Upon thy shores eternally possest;
For Jesus reigns o'er thee,
Calm Land beyond the Sea!
Alone ! to land alone upon that shore!
With no one sight that we have seen before,
Things of a different hue,
And the sounds all new, And fragrances so sweet the soul may faint. Alone! Oh that first hour of being a saint!
