So long ago and far away
A young man spent his final day
Upon a windy hill out there
He died and left us unprepared
For all the pain that was to come
With sin for all and calm for none !
Under the spell of magic breeze
His presence moved among the trees
As far off stars to earth they fell
And history that story tell.
These words we keep remembering
Can faith to all God’s children bring
And peace that will in truth display
His sacrifice on that last day !
