1 Shall we sing in heav'n forever?
Shall we sing? Shall we sing?
Shall we sing in heav'n forever,
In that holy happy land?
Yes! oh, yes! in that land, that happy land,
They that meet shall sing forever,
Far beyond the rolling river,
Meet to sing and love forever,
In that holy happy land.

2 Shall we know each other ever,
In that land? in that land?
Shall we know each other ever,
In that holy happy land?
Yes! oh, yes! in that land, that happy land,
They that meet shall know each other,
Far beyond the rolling river,
Meet to sing and love forever,
In that holy happy land.

3 Shall we sing with holy angels
In that land? in that land?
Shall we sing with holy angels,
In that holy happy land?
Yes! oh, yes! in that land, that happy land,
Saints and angels sing forever,
Far beyond the rolling river,
Meet to sing and love forever,
In that holy happy land.

4 Shall we rest from care and sorrow
In that land? in that land?
Shall we rest from care and sorrow,
In that holy happy land?
Yes! oh, yes! in that land, that happy land,
They that meet shall rest forever,
Far beyond the rolling river,
Meet to sing and love forever,
In that holy happy land.

5 Shall we know our blessed Saviour
In that land? in that land?
Shall we know our blessed Saviour
In that holy happy land?
Yes! oh, yes! in that land, that happy land,
We shall know our blessed Saviour,
Far beyond the rolling river,
Love and serve him there forever,
In that holy happy land.
