1 Beyond the winter’s storms and blight,
Beyond the summer’s shining strand,
There waits a land of joy and light—
O bright and fade-less summer-land!

Refrain:
O summer-land, that gleams afar,
Beyond the light of sun or star,
O summer-land, O summer-land,
We long for thee, dear summer-land.

2 No ling’ring shadow of the night
Shall dim the glory of that shore;
There all is joy and song and light
And rest and peace forevermore! [Refrain]

3 No parting word, no tears nor pain,
Shall pass those portals fair and bright,
There parted friends shall meet again,
Within that land of love and light! [Refrain]
