Song background:

Lyrics by Samuel Francis Smith (1808-1895). These words were included in the first hymn book of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, compiled by Emma Smith in 1835. A pioneer/missionary themed song about leaving familiar surroundings of home in order to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ in "distant lands".  An ideal missionary-farewell musical number!
