When They Ring The Golden Bells Lyrics

Artist: Natalie Merchant
Album: Ophelia

There's a land beyond the river
That they 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 heaven of tomorrow
When our hearts shall sail beyond the silvery 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
When 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
When they ring the golden bells for you and me

Beautiful song about crossing over!

I dont think its Jubilee- I think she says To Believe. Listen closely, very hard T sound at beginning and ends with V sound....

I don't know what she says, but the word is Jubilee. I have known that song many, many years. I want this sung at my funeral. Not any time really soon though.

When was this song written? I heard it years ago and it still is fresh on my mind. It is so beautiful and I love it.
