Forget your troubles, come on get happy 
You better chase all your cares away 
Shout 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 away in the tide 
It's all so peaceful 
On the other side 

Forget your troubles, come on get happy 
You better chase all your cares away 
Shout Hallelujah, come on get happy 
Get ready for the judgment day 

The sun is shining, come on get happy 
Chase your cares away 
Hallelujah, get happy 
Come on, 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 gonna be going to the Promised Land 

We're heading 'cross the river 
Wash our sins away in the tide 
It's quiet and peaceful 
On the other side 

Forget your troubles, get happy 
Your cares fly away
Sing Hallelujah, get happy 
Get ready for your judgment day

Come on get happy 
Chase your cares away 
Shout Hallelujah, come on get happy 
Get ready for the judgment day

Shout and shine and come on get happy
Lord is waiting to take your hand 
Hallelujah, come on get happy 
We're gonna be going to the Promised Land

Heading 'cross the river 
Wash our sins away in the tide 
It's also peaceful 
On the other side 

Shout Hallelujah, come on get happy 
You better chase all your cares away 
Shout Hallelujah, come on get happy 
Get ready, get ready
Get ready for the judgment day (hallelujah, hallelujah)
