1 The golden spires are gleaming
Just on the other side!
I see the turrets glisten
Hard by the flowing tide;
The pearly gates are open
The highway’s large and free,
And angel bands are waiting
To welcome you and me.

Refrain:
Waiting, waiting, beautiful forms I see,
The angel bands are waiting
To welcome you and me.

2 The fadeless flowers are blooming,
Just on the other side,
And down life’s shining river
The crystal waters glide;
The sons of glory linger
Beneath each spreading tree,
And angel bands are waiting
To welcome you and me. [Refrain]

3 With joy we soon shall gather
Just on the other side,
While endless songs of triumph
Come floating o’er the tide;
In Eden’s starlit mansions
Our home shall ever be,
And angel bands are waiting
To welcome you and me. [Refrain]

4 Yes, waiting, ever waiting
Just on the other side—
Beyond the rolling river,
Across the surging tide;
Yes, waiting, ever waiting
Upon the Jasper Sea,
The angel bands are waiting
To welcome you and me. [Refrain]
