There's a land beyond the riverThat we call the sweet forever And we'll only reach that shore by faith's decreeOne by one we'll gain the portalsThere to dwell with the immortalsWhen they ring the golden bells for you and meDon't you hear the bells now ringingDon't you hear the angels singing'Tis the "Glory, Hallelujah!" JubileeIn a far off sweet foreverJust beyond the shinning riverWhen they ring the golden bells for you and meWe shall know no sin or sorrowIn that Heaven of tomorrowWhen our hearts just sail beyond the silver seaWe shall only know the blessingOf our Father's sweet caressingWhen they ring the golden bells for you and meDon't you hear the bells now ringingDon't you hear the angels singing'Tis the "Glory, Hallelujah!" JubileeIn a far off sweet foreverJust beyond the shinning riverWhen they ring the golden bells for you and meWhen our days shall know their numberWhen in death we sweetly slumberWhen the king commands the spirit to be freeNevermore with anguish ladenWe shall reach that lovely EdenWhen they ring the golden bells for you and meWhen they ring the golden bells for you and me
