about

Before leaving on his first great Pacific Voyage and not knowing how long he will be away, James--while saying farewell to his wife Elizabeth--points out a star they will both be able to observe during his absence.

lyrics

DISTANT HEARTS
(Music: Tim Hunter; Lyrics: Frederick McKinnon and Tim Hunter)

ONE LITTLE STAR
SHINING IN HEAVEN
RIGHT THERE FOR US TO SEE
A GUIDING LIGHT
A VISION TO SHARE
A PRECIOUS PRIZE FOR YOU AND FOR ME

(ELIZABETH)
ONE DISTANT GLEAM
HIGH UP ABOVE US
A TOUCH OF GOD’S DESIGN
A GIFT FOR TWO
A SYMBOL OF LOVE
WILL EVER REMIND ME THAT YOU ARE MINE

(JAMES and ELIZABETH)
THOUGH MILES AND TIME
MAY LIVE BETWEEN OUR DAYS
OUR SOULS WILL NEVER BE FAR
WHENEVER WE LOOK TO OUR STAR

DISTANT HEARTS
FOLLOWING THE SAME STAR
WE’LL NEVER BE APART
WE’LL NEVER BE FAR

(JAMES)
ONE HOPEFUL SIGN
WHEN MISSING YOU MOST
FROM LAND OR FROM SEA

(ELIZABETH)
A BRILLIANT SIGHT
A FEELING TO HOLD
TO BRING MY CHERISHED LOVE BACK TO ME

(JAMES and ELIZABETH)
THOUGH MILES AND TIME
MAY LIVE BETWEEN OUR DAYS
OUR SOULS WILL NEVER BE FAR
WHENEVER WE LOOK TO OUR STAR

DISTANT HEARTS
FOLLOWING THE SAME STAR
WE’LL NEVER BE APART
WE’LL NEVER BE FAR

(JAMES)
ONE HOPEFUL SIGN
WHEN MISSING YOU MOST
FROM LAND OR FROM SEA

(ELIZABETH)
A BRILLIANT SIGHT
A FEELING TO HOLD
TO BRING MY CHERISHED LOVE BACK TO ME

(JAMES and ELIZABETH)
DISTANT HEARTS
FOLLOWING THE SAME STAR
WE’LL NEVER BE APART
WE’LL NEVER BE FAR
