She loved the beautiful things of life, and though for many months her view was limited to things she could see from her window, she was ever cheerful knowing
There's a beautiful land tho' far away
Where the people are happy and free,
With the hoping some day to pass that way,
The beautiful country to see.
This beautiful land, tis the home of the soul
The place of God's people at rest.
