14 Missionary's Farewell

In the deserts let me labor; 
On the mountains let me tell 
How he died, the blessed Savior, 
To redeem a world from hell;
Let me hasten, let me hasten,
Far in distant lands to dwell.

Bear me on, thou restless ocean; 
Let the winds my canvas swell; 
Heaves my heart with warm emotion, 
While I go far hence to dwell;
Glad I bid thee, Glad I bid thee, 
Native land, farewell, farewell.
