My own dear land
My own dear land, whereíer my footsteps wander,
Ever to thee my heart still turns again;
To thee my love grows ever fonder, fonder,
Till in its might it is akin to pain.
Ever to thee Iím bound in love and duty;
No dearer land to me in all the earth;
By all sweet ties of home and love and beauty,
To thee I cleave, dear land that gave me birth.
Yet I look on, beyond earthís habitation,
To where a home of rarer vision gleams,
Fairer than earthís most wonderful creation
Bathed in the light of Heavínís own morning beams.
There we shall meet, from every clime and nation,
There we shall meet in answer to the call,
There we shall meet in joyous consecration,
Sons of one Father, brothers one and all.
