Far away is the land of rest

Thousand miles are stretched between

Many a mountain's stormy crest,

Many a desert void of green.

Wasted, worn is the traveller

Dark his heart and dim his eye

Without hope and dashed comforter

Faltering, faint, and ready to die.

Often he looks to the ruthless sky,

Often he looks over his dreary road.

Often he wishes down to lie

And render up life's tiresome load.

If ye still despair control,

Hush its whispers in yer soul.

You shall win or loose

By the way ye choose,

Down in the land of broken dreams.
