i’ve been carried far from my mother’s side
and my spirit is broken with the times i’ve tried
yes, my spirit's been broken in this foreign land

and horses may flee with hooves of steel
but i flounder in the dark when I see what’s real
yes i flounder in the dark in this foreign land

but midst brier and bush i’ll make my home
you will water these rocklands until i’m grown
you’ll plant me a home in this foreign land

and you ripped me out from my beloved place
but you said: come, my love, i will show you grace
i will show you my grace in this foreign land

so build your houses and plant your trees
and find your beloved ’neath these autumn leaves
yes, you’ll find your beloved in this foreign land
