We Shall Rise

The Carter Family

In the resurrection morning
When the trump of God shall sound
We shall rise (hallelujah) we shall rise
Then the saints will come rejoicing
And no tears will there be found
We shall rise (hallelujah) we shall rise

We shall rise (hallelujah) we shall rise (amen)
We shall rise (hallelujah) in that resurrection morning
When these prison bars are broken
We shall rise (hallelujah) we shall rise


In the resurrection morning
What a meeting it will be
We shall rise (hallelujah) we shall rise
When our fathers and mothers and our loved ones we shall see
We shall rise (hallelujah) we shall rise

In the resurrection morning
Blessed thought it is to me
We shall rise (hallelujah) we shall rise
I will see my blessed savior
Who so freely died for me
We shall rise (hallelujah) we shall rise

In the resurrection morning
We shall meet Him in the air
We shall rise (hallelujah) we shall rise
And be carried up to Glory
to our home so bright and fair
We shall rise (hallelujah) we shall rise
