Page 214 - And the preacher heard his dear ones, nestled round him, weeping sore: " Never heed, my little children ! Christ is walking on before To the pleasant land of heaven, where the sea shall be no more.

Their bones are on the Northern hill, And on the Southern plain, By brook and river, lake and rill, And by the roaring main. The land is holy where they fought, And holy where they fell ; For by their blood that land was bought, The land they loved so well.
