Verse 1

-7<     7<  7   -6  7   -6   7  -7<
There's a  land be-yond the riv-er,

7    -5<  -5  -5   -5<  5  -3< -5 
that we  call the sweet for-ev-er,

-5< -6  7 -6<   7   -7<   -7<  -7   8     -7< -6 
And we on-ly  reach that shore by faith's decree;

-6  7   7<   7    -7<  7  -6 -5<  
One by one we'll gain the portals,

-5<   -5   5   -5   -5< 5  -3< -5<  
There to dwell with the im-mor-tals,

-5<  -6    7   -7< -9< -8<  -7<   7  -6   7  -5<
When they ring the gold-en bells for you and me.

Chorus

-7<   -7< -8<   7<  -9<  -8<  7<  -8<
Don't you hear the bells now ring-ing?

-9<   -8< -7<  -8< -7< 7     7  -7< 
Don't you hear the an-gels sing-ing?

 -7< -7< -9< -9 -8< -7<   7< 7   -6 -5< -7<
'Tis the glo-ry hal-le - lul-jah ju-bi -lee, (ju-bi -lee,)

-7<  7< 7  -6<   7   -6  7  -7<
In  that far-off sweet for-ev-er,

 7  -5<  5   -5   -5<  5  -3< -5<
Just be-yond the shin-ing riv-er,

-5<  -6    7   -7< -9< -8<  -7<   7  -6   7  -5<
When they ring the gold-en bells for you and me.

Verse 2

We shall know no sin nor sor-row, 
In that ha-ven of to-mor-row, 
When our barque shall sail beyond the sil-ver sea;
We shall on-ly know the blessing
Of our Fa-ther's sweet ca-ress-ing, 
When they ring the golden bells for you and me.

Verse 3

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