Somewhere, beyond the hills of life

Full Text

1 Somewhere, beyond the hills of life,
And all the bounds of sin and strive;
Where gates are pearl and streets are gold,
My Savior I shall then behold.

Somewhere, i know that I shall see,-
Jesus,- who gave His life for me;
Somewhere, when He will call me, I will go
To Him, because He loves me so.

2 Somewhere, the angels sing His praise,
And throngs their glad hosannas raise;
The hands once nailed to Cal'v'ry's tree
Will be outstretched to welcome me. [Chorus]

3 Somewhere, my life so sweet and fair,
His glory I shall always share;
And there with Him and all the blest,
Forevermore my soul shall rest [Chorus]
