When They Ring The Golden Bell

This song is by Sister Rosetta Tharpe and appears on the album Gospel Train (1956).

There's a land beyond the river, that we call the sweet forever
And we only reach that shore by faith's decree;
One by one we'll gain the portals, there to dwell with the immortals
When they ring the golden bells for you and me

Don't you hear the bells now ringing?
Don't you hear the angels singing?
Tis the glory hallelujah Jubilee
In that far off sweet forever
Just beyond the shining river
When they ring the golden bells for you and me

We shall know no sin or sorrow, in that haven of tomorrow
When our barque shall sail beyond the silver sea;
We shall only know the blessing of our Father's sweet caressing
When they ring the golden bells for you and me

Don't you hear the bells now ringing?
Don't you hear the angels singing?
Tis the glory hallelujah Jubilee
In that far off sweet forever
Just beyond the shining river
When they ring the golden bells for you and me

When our days shall know their number, and in death we sweetly slumber
When the King commands the spirit to be free;
Nevermore with anguish laden, we shall reach that lovely Eden
When they ring the golden bells for you and me

Don't you hear the bells now ringing?
Don't you hear the angels singing?
Tis the glory hallelujah Jubilee
In that far off sweet forever
Just beyond the shining river
When they ring the golden bells for you and me
