1 Beautiful white clouds drifting away,
Under the blue, under the blue,
Drifting away, at the closing of day,
Hidden from view, hidden from view;
Floating away from our raptured sight,
Tinged by the glow of the fast fading light,
Tinged by the glow of the fast fading light.

Refrain:
Gliding away, gliding away,
Over the storm line into the bay;
Sorrow and sighing there shall cease,
Beautiful haven of perfect peace.

2 Beautiful white forms gliding away,
Over the sea, over the sea,
Gliding away to the heavenly shore,
Hidden from me, hidden from me;
Sailing away from our mortal sight,
Out of the shadow and into the light,
Out of the shadow and into the light. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful mansions brighter than day,
Waiting for me, waiting for me,
Beautiful faces that glided away,
There I shall see, there I shall see;
Ne’er to be tossed by the wind or tides,
Resting in peace that forever abides,
Resting in peace that forever abides. [Refrain]
