Beautiful Isle of Somewhere

A                    E
Somewhere the sun is shining,
Somewhere the songbirds dwell;
Hush, then, thy sad repining,
B7                    E7
God lives, and all is well.

A          E7
Somewhere, somewhere,
F#m               E7
Beautiful Isle of Somewhere!
A           E              A7    D
Land of the true, where we live anew,
A                 E7   A
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 door;
Somewhere the clouds are rifted,
Somewhere the angels sing.
