Representative Text

1 Beyond the dusky ocean,
Where solemn waters roll,
There is a country glad and bright,
The homeland of my soul.

O homeland, dear homeland,
O happy sinless shore;
Beyond the tide I shall abide,
Safe there forevermore.

2 Beyond the shadows falling,
So soon on life’s brief day,
My soul shall pass into a light,
That never fades away. [Refrain]

3 Beyond the pain and sorrow,
Which often comes to me,
My soul shall have a peace divine,
Thro’ all eternity. [Refrain]
