WHEN THEY RING THE GOLDEN BELLS



Don’t you hear the bells now ringing?



Don’t you hear the angels singing?



“Tis the glory halleluiah 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.
