WESTWARD BOUND, by            
First Line: In the land of lights and shadows
Last Line: O'er a world that's softly sleeping.


In the land of lights and shadows --
That is where I long to dwell,
In the land where dancing sunbeams
Flirt with clouds and cast their spell
Across the vast expanse of prairie,
Fantastic giant shapes so airy!

To the land of fiery sunsets --
That is where I long to turn,
To the land where golden deserts
Like the flaming sky my heart will burn;
Till through the cool of twilight slipping
I faintly see the soft stars tripping.

In the land of dazzling moonlight --
That is where I long to be,
In the land of God's own grandeur
Radiant in His brilliancy;
Till quietly the dawn comes creeping
O'er a world that's softly sleeping.
