My soul will soon be sleeping

Somewhere in heaven’s keeping

To rest until the ending of time;

Some morning to awaken

In glory to be taken

Where bells of life eternally chime.


When dust in dust shall tarry

Sweet angel hands will carry

My soul across the dark stormy tide;

Where all the blest are given

To see the light of Heaven

And ever with the Savior abide.


How sweet will be the morning

With Heaven’s hand adorning

My soul to meet the Lord in the air;

At last to be ascending

To life that has no ending

Inside the shining city foursquare.


A golden home forever

Beside a living river

The saved of all the ages await;

That city will be ringing

Eternally with singing

When Jesus leads me thru Heaven’s gate.
