Representative Text

1. We shall hear the angels singing,
When we reach the golden shore;
Loud their anthems will be ringing,
When we reach the golden shore;
Jesus there will rise to meet us,
With sweet loving words He’ll greet us,
And beside Him He will seat us,
When we reach the golden shore.

2. We shall cast our crowns before Him,
When we reach the golden shore;
And with shining hosts adore Him,
When we reach the golden shore;
Every land and every nation,
All made free thro’ His salvation,
Will join in the acclamation,
When we reach the golden shore.
