Faraway, ye billows, bear me:
Lovely, native land farewell!
Pleas’d I leave thee—
Far in distant lands to dwell.
 
5 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,
Far in distant lands to dwell.
 
6 Bear me on, thou restless ocean;
Let the winds my canvass swell—
Heaves my heart with warm emotion,
While I go far hence to dwell,
Glad I bid thee,
Native land!—Farewell—Farewell.
 
Hymn 52 • Adieu, my dear brethren adieu
HYMN 52. P. M.
 
1 Adieu, my dear brethren adieu,
Reluctant we give you the hand,
No more to assemble with you,
Till we on mount Zion shall stand.
 
2 Your acts of benevolence past,
Your gentle compassionate love,
Henceforth in our mem’ry shall last,
Though far from your sight we remove.
