Beloved Isle Cayman

Beloved Isle Cayman
as composed by
Leila Ross-Shier,
June, 1930

O land of soft, fresh breezes,
Of verdant trees so fair
With the Creator’s glory reflected ev’rywhere.
O sea of palest em’rald,
Merging to darkest blue,
When ‘ere my thoughts fly Godward,
I always think of you.

Chorus
Dear, verdant island, set
In blue Caribbean sea,
I’m coming, coming very soon,
O beauteous isle, to thee.
Although I’ve wandered far,
My heart enshrines thee yet.
Homeland! Fair Cayman Isle
I cannot thee forget
