1 O glorious homeland just over the line,
Prepared for the weary by Christ the divine,
Who says if I’m faithful that home shall be mine,
In the beautiful, golden sometime.

Refrain:
Beautiful golden sometime, sometime, sometime,
Thro’ Jesus, my Savior, that home shall be mine,
In the beautiful, golden sometime.

2 When friends loved so dearly drift over the tide,
And days seem so dreary when missed from our side,
I think of reunion where angels abide,
In the beautiful, golden sometime. [Refrain]

3 When weary with toiling, in sorrow alone,
With bearing the burdens to others unknown,
There comes to my mind the sweet rest near the throne,
In the beautiful, golden sometime. [Refrain]

4 When deep are the shadows encircling me here,
When beams of glad sunlight so seldom appear,
Hope whispers of homeland and glorified cheer,
In the beautiful, golden sometime. [Refrain]
