Beneath the Southern Cross

Written by Robbie Smith

We pledged to meet where banyons grow
Beneath the southern cross’s glow
Far, far from fears that we have shed
Beyond the reach of lives we’ve led

No fonder love has ever grown
From two sad hearts too long alone
No surer hope could ‘ere survive these tests
And yet emerge to thrive

The Southern Cross is guiding us
The Southern Cross is offering us it’s treasure
Though we be lost, and tempest tossed
The Southern Cross will glow in our hearts ‘til we are together

So keep the Southern Cross in view
Don’t let it’s comfort fade from you
When searching ends, then living starts
For its then we’ll quench our thirsting hearts

The Southern Cross is guiding us
The Southern Cross is offering us it’s treasure
Though we be lost, and tempest tossed
The Southern Cross will glow in our hearts ‘til we are together
(instrumental line)

The Southern Cross
The Southern Cross is offering us it’s splendour
Though we be lost, and tempest tossed
The Southern Cross will glow in our hearts ‘til we are together
‘Til we are together
