1 Yes, my native land, I love thee,
All thy scenes I love them well;
Friends, connections, happy country;
Can I bid you all farewell;
Can I leave you, Can I leave you,
Far in heathen lands to dwell;
(Repeat previous 2 lines)

2 Home! thy joys are passing lovely!
Joys no stranger heart can tell!
Happy home! 'tis sure I love thee!
Can I, can I say farewell?
Can I leave thee, can I leave thee,
Far in heathen lands to dwell;
(Repeat previous 2 lines)

3 Scenes of sacred peace and pleasure,
Holy days and Sabbath bell.
Richest, brightest, sweetest treasure!
Can I say a last farewell?
Can I leave you, Can I leave you,
Far in heathen lands to dwell;
(Repeat previous 2 lines)

4 Yes, I hasten from you gladly,
From the scenes I loved so well!
Far away, ye billows, bear me;
Lovely, native land, farewell!
Pleased I leave thee, Pleased I leave thee,
Far in heathen lands to dwell;
(Repeat previous 2 lines)

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, Let me hasten,
Far in heathen lands to dwell;
(Repeat previous 2 lines)

6 Bear me on, thou restless ocean;
Let the winds my canvas swell—
Heaves my heart with warm emotion,
While I go far hence do dwell.
Glad I leave thee, Glad I leave thee,
Native land, Farewell! Farewell!
(Repeat previous 2 lines)
