The Olive Leaf-17, The Land For Me


Note that the book from which this song was taken is currently out of print.

1. Farewell! farewell to all below!
My Savior calls and I must go:
I'll launch my bark upon the sea:
This land is not the land for me.

2. I find the winding path of sin
A rugged way to travel in:
Beyond the swelling waves, I see
The land the Savior bought for me.

3. Farewell, my friends! I cannot stay;
The land I seek is far away:
Where Christ is not I would not be;
This land is not the land for me.
