Representative Text

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.

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]
