I know not where, but somewhere far away,
There lies a garden where tired hearts may stray,
Where shadows are not, where no tears can be,
Where life’s vain discords end in harmony.

I know not where, but somewhere far away,
There lies a sheltered, quiet harbour bay,
Where ships may anchor, where sails are furled,
Beyond the storm and tumult of the world.

Fight on, my heart, and when the battle’s won,
Lie down in peace beneath the setting sun,
And reap the harvest of these troubled years,
And rest at last beyond this vale of tears.
