BEYOND THE SUNSET Music: Blanche Kerr Brock Lyrics: Virgil P Brock Recordings: Hank Williams, Pat Boone, Porter Heaps, Blackwood Brothers, Cowboy Copas, Red Foley, Lonnie Donegan, many others... Beyond the sunset, oh blissful morning, When with our Saviour heav'n has begun. Earth's toiling ended oh glorious dawning; Beyond the sunset, when day is done. Beyond the sunset, no clouds will gather, No storms will threaten no fears annoy; Oh day of gladness oh day unending, Beyond the sunset, eternal joy Beyond the sunset, a hand will guide me To God the Father, whom I adore; His glorious presence, His words of welcome, Will be my portion on that fair shore Beyond the sunset, o glad reunion, With our dear loved ones who've gone before; In that fair homeland we'll know no parting, Beyond the sunset forever more. Copyright: 1936 by The Rodeheaver Co Robbins Music Corp Ltd 23 Denmark Street London W1 This song is usually sung behind the following poem written by Albert Kennedy Rowswell (copyright 1935) Should you go first and I remain To walk the road alone, I'll live in memory's garden, dear, With happy days we've known In spring I'll wait for roses red, When fades the lilacs blue, And in early fall when brown leaves fall, I'll catch a glimpse of you. Should you go first and I remain For battles to be fought, Each thing you've touched along the way, Will be a hallowed spot. I'll hear your voice I'll see your smile, Though blindly I may grope, The memory of your helping hand, Will buoy me on with hope. Should you go first and I remain To finish with the scroll, No lessening shadows shall ever creep in To make this life seem droll. We've known so much of happiness, We've had our cup of joy. And memory is one gift of God That death cannot destroy. Should you go first and I remain, One thing I'll have you do; Walk slowly down that long lone path, For soon I'll follow you. I'll want to know each step you take That I may walk the same, For someday down that lonely road, You'll hear me call - your name. (Contributed by Paul Daniel - March 2010)
