Songs of days gone by
by Alice McKiel

Here are a few songs Grandma used to sing while she knitted me a scarf or mittens
           

BEAUTIFUL ISLE OF SOMEWHERE

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

CHORUS:
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 angles wait.
