Pack up your troubles and just get happy 
Ya 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 
Gonna wash our sins in the tide 
It's all so peaceful 
On the other side 

Forget your troubles and just get happy 
Ya better chase all your cares away 
Sing Hallelujah, c'mon 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 our sins away in the tide 
It's all so peaceful 
On the other side 

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

Forget your troubles and just get happy 
Ya better chase your cares away!
Sing Hallelujah, come on get happy 
Get ready for the judgment day
