Representative Text

1 Somewhere there’s a world of beauty,
Fairer than this world of ours;
Where the pathways sparkle brightly,
Strewn with fair, unearthly flowers.

Somewhere, somewhere,
Fairer than this world of ours;
Somewhere, somewhere,
Strewn with fair, unearthly flowers.

2 There are dear ones over yonder,
In that world of beauty fair;
We are going now to meet them,
In that haven over there. [Refrain]

3 Now the beacon lights are beaming,
As we journey on the way,
And we see the city yonder—
Sparkling in the golden ray. [Refrain]
