I hear the song
From back of my mind
Calling my a little voice
To cross the golden gate

Who is singing the song
A wonderful song like this
It has made me cry
For the painful story I heard

That, that girl is gone
The beautiful lady I knew
She liked to sing
The best song I know

Now the song repeats itself in my mind
When we come to the river
Who will help us cross the river
Before the night falls
Who will help us cross

That lad is gone
Surely can't believe
But now I know
We will meet on the beautiful shore
Beyond the banks of death.
