Homeland

Language: English

There's a Homeland, a free land,
Across the sea,
Where they watch and wait,
And trust in me.

I'll go back to that land
When my task is done;
I'll go back to that land
When my fight is won,

And say to them that mourn:
"God's peace is yours forevermore."

There's a Homeland, a red land,
About me here,
Where they watch and wait,
Nor weep nor fear.

I'll go back from this land
When my task is done;
I'll go back from this land
When my fight is won,

Saying to them that mourn:
"God's peace is yours forevermore."
