Our land is bounded by no seaAuthor: Mrs. Frank A. Breck
Tune: [Our land is bounded by no sea[ (Gabriel)
Published in 3 hymnals
1 Our land is bounded by no sea,
Nor marked by surging tide;
The land that needs our sympathy
Must never be denied.
That land is ours where toilers strive
In search of honest good;
There must we make their welfare thrive
In human brotherhood.
We love (We love) our native land,
We love her flag unfurled;
But wilder realms must love command,-
Our country is the world.
2 Oh, let no narrow confines bind
Our loving loyalty!
To all the world let us be kind,
And wish prosperity.
Love would bestow life's better things
Till all with joy are crowned'
To all humanity love clings,
And girds the world around. [Chorus]
3 End soon oppression's boastful hour!
Be banished rum's disastrous pow'r,
And raise the "broken reed."
Let love divine our hearts expand,
And reach to great and small;
We love our own- and ev'ry land,
And blessings seek for all. [Chorus]
