Treasure Island

A name so sweet


There is a name, that is so sweet,
i love to hear it everyday
it's a name, oh, so complete

His name is Jesus, whom i love
he's as beautiful,
as a dove

I want to follow him, all the way
in the church, where he put me,
that is where, I should stay.

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
