Yonder Setting Sun

I have taken my final arrow, My race has now been run I’ll depart from here and go in peace Into yonder setting sun I will climb aboard the ship of death And cross the chilling tide I will go to yonder setting sun As on this ship I will ride I will not fear what lies ahead, Or what I cannot tell I’ll stand upon the bough and wave To this life farewell I will now close my eyes in death, Weary from the race I’ve run As upon the bough of death’s ship I will ride To yonder setting sun
