BEAUTIFUL ISLE OF SOMEWHERE
(Mrs. J. B. Pounds; J.S. Fearis)

Somewhere the sun is shining,
Somewhere the songbirds dwell;
Hush, then, thy sad repining;
God lives, and all is well.

cho: Somewhere, Somewhere, Beautiful Isle of Somewhere!
Land of the true, where we live anew
Beautiful Isle of Somewhere!

Somewhere the day is longer,
Somewhere the task is done;
Somewhere the heart is stronger,
Somewhere the guerdon won.

Somewhere the load is lifted,
Close by an open gate;
Somewhere the clouds are rifted,
Somewhere the angels wait.

Words by Mrs. Jessie Brown Pounds
nusic by J.S. Fearis
copyright 1897 and 1901 by E.O. Excell.

This funeral song was sung by a four-part women's choir at the
memorial service for President McKinley. CIose harmony songs
like this were very popular in those days.
