Lyrics:

Hark I Hear the harps eternal ringing on the farther shore
As I near those swollen waters with their deep and solemn roar

Halelujah, Halelujah, Halelujah praise the lamb
Halelujah, Halelujah, Glory to the great I am

And my soul though stained with sorrow, fading as the light of day
Passes swiftly o’er those waters to the city far away

Halelujah, Halelujah, …

Souls have crossed before me saintly to that land of perfect rest
and I hear them singing faintly in the mansions of the blest

Halelujah, Halelujah, …

Halelujah, Halelujah, …
