When They Ring Them Golden Bells (With Hidden Track- Ophelia Reprise) Lyrics

When They Ring Them Golden Bells (LP版) - Natalie Merchant

There's a land beyond the river

 

That they call the sweet forever

 

And we'll only reach that shore by fate'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

 

To say 'glory hallelujah' to believe

 

In the 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 river 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

 

To say 'glory hallelujah' to believe

 

In the 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

 

Never more 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
