Somewhere beyond the Rainbow's End, The Skies are bright and fair.
No shadows dim, No darkness full. The land is Peaceful there,
And someone with the Power To heal, to guide and understand. So when a dear one heeds His call,
Our heart should be at rest. For there beyond the Rainbow's End,
A Loving God knows best.
