1 Heaven’s not far away, so I’ve oft been told,
Tho’ its glory’s ne’er been seen;
But I feel today within my soul,
There is only a veil between.

Refrain:
There is only a veil between,
There is only a veil between,
By faith I can hear the angels sing,
For there’s only a veil between.

2 If our lives are in tune with the Infinite,
In our souls the joy-bells ring;
By faith, we can hear the angels sing,
For there’s only a veil between. [Refrain]

3 Wheat a peace it brings to my raptured soul,
How my heart with gladness sings;
As I think of the King and lov’d ones there,
With only a veil between. [Refrain]
