Lyrics[]

Forget your troubles and just get happy, you better chase all your cares away.
Sing Hallelujah, come on get happy, get ready for the Judgment Day.
The sun is shining, come on get happy, the Lord is waiting to take your hand.
Shout Hallelujah, come on get happy, we're going to the promised land.
We're heading 'cross the river, wash your sins 'way in the tide.
It's so peaceful on the other side.
