What's That I Hear? Anyone know the words?

Song starts out,
Men often dream of faraway lands with strange sounding names,
Oh but it seems that each time i dream, it's much the same

Any help would be appreciated

WHAT'S THAT I HEAR?

VERSE 1:
MEN OFTEN DREAM OF FAR AWAY LANDS,
WITH STRANGE SOUNDING NAMES
OH BUT IT SEEMS THAT EACH TIME I DREAM,
IT'S MUCH THE SAME
I SPEND MY DAYS IN MUCH THE SAME WAY,
I WAIT FOR THAT SOUND
THEN MY HANDS SHALL BE RAISED, IN ONE SHOUT OF PRAISE, HEADED FOR HIGHER GROUND.


CHORUS:
OH WHAT'S THAT I HEAR
IS IT THE SOUND OF A TRUMPET
I FEEL THE TOUCH
OF A MUCH BETTER PLACE
AND IF I AM DREAMING
OH PLEASE DON'T WAKE ME
SOON THE EASTERN SKIES WILL PART AND I'LL SEE HIS FACE


VERSE 2:
THIS WORLD HAS LOST ALL OF ITS CHARM,
IT'S NO PLACE FOR ME
THERE'S A BRIGHT SHINING THRONE IN MY NEW HOME,
THAT I LONG TO SEE
OH YES THERE'S A PLACE THAT I'VE NEVER BEEN,
I'VE NEVER BEEN BEFORE
A WHITE PEARLY GATE AND A FATHER WHO WAITS,
STANDING RIGHT BY THE DOOR

[ CHORUS ]

Are you sure about lines 5 and 6 of verse two? They were the ones I was stuck on?

Anyone know who might have recorded this song? I remember hearing someone sing it on a UPC Conference compilation recording around the early eighties

Men often dream of faraway lands with strange sounding names
Oh but it seems that each time I dream, its much the same
I see a place that I have never seen before
It's got a white pearly gate and a father that waits
By a big open door

chorus:
What's that I hear, is it the sound of a trumpet
I feel the touch of a much better place
If I am dreaming, please don't awake me
For soon the eastern skies will part and I'll see his face.

Now this old world has lost its charm, it's no place for me
It's that white shining throne in my new home I long to see
And i spend my days in much the same ways, I wait for that sound
THen my hands will be raised, with one shout of praise
Headed for higher ground

Do you know Nashille Notation? Or is there a particular key you want?
