Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: Somewhere, so far o’er yonder, So far beyond and even further, Than man may know, There I’ll be going. My Lord will send for me and I will surely go.
Verse 2: Somewhere there’s glory blooming, In bowers green, beyond all gloaming, Where longings cease My soul contented. I’ve but to wait, For soon or late He’ll beckon me.
Verse 3: O isle, thou isle of Somewhere, O land beyond yon dreaded river. I look to thee, My eyes not seeing, But faith in thee hath made me see thy graciousness.
Coda: O isle, thou Isle of Somewhere, O land beyond yon river.
