Representative Text

1 There’s a beautiful land in the somewhere of God,
Where His children shall dwell evermore;
Free from sorrow and pain, they shall gather again,
And no shadows e’er fall on the shore.

Refrain:
In the somewhere of God, by and by,
Where the Saviour His loved ones shall bring,
Where no shadows e’er darken the sky,
I shall look on the face of my king.

2 There the anthems of praise, like the sound of the sea,
Never cease while the years onward roll;
There will be no more fears, no more dying, nor tears,
In that glorious home of the soul. [Refrain]

3 O how sweet it will be, free from sorrow and care,
On that shore where the sun ne’er goes down;
When our Saviour we meet, and with rapture complete,
WE receive from His hand a bright crown. [Refrain]
