My own dear land wherever my footsteps




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.
