By Mrs. O. Simmons I
Sometime we will drltf with the ailver
Neath a starry sky, where the sea is
To return no more to this barvtn
For we linger there where they sor
row ho more.
All must embark on this silent suest.
To an unknown land tilled with joy
and rest.
So our sails must be set and our gar
ments white
When our signal comes on some
dreamless night.
Then w# II gather our oars and move
out to sea
To a blissful reward, that will endless
And by faith will follow a guiding
To to pearly dawn In a fadeless land.
