Beautiful Isle of Somewhere" was originally a poem entitled "Beautiful Isle" by Jessie Brown Pounds. The words were written in the winter of 1896, during a period of miserable weather. Persuaded or possibly forced to stay home, the words were written within an hour's time. It was set to music by John S. Fearis, who had purchased the poem for five dollars, and the song was published in 1897. In 1901, the song was sung by the Euterpian Ladies Quartet towards the beginning of the President McKinley's memorial service

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