Beautiful Isle of Somewhere
(Mrs. J. B. Pounds; J.S. Fearis)

Somewhere the sun is shining,
Somewhere the songbirds dwell;
Hush, then, thy sad repining;
God lives, and all is well.

cho: Somewhere, Somewhere, Beautiful Isle of Somewhere!
     Land of the true, where we live anew
     Beautiful Isle of Somewhere!

Somewhere the day is longer,
Somewhere the task is done;
Somewhere the heart is stronger,
Somewhere the guerdon won.

Somewhere the load is lifted,
Close by an open gate;
Somewhere the clouds are rifted,
Somewhere the angels wait.

Words by Mrs. Jessie Brown Pounds
