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

Nashville Notation is the I IV bit.
Here goes.

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

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

Hope this helps

I am also looking for the words to a song by the same title, but it is obviously a dirrerent song. I believe the one I am looking for was written by Bill Morgan who used to live in or near Quitman or Heber Springs AR. His brother or brother-in-law or sister-in-law may have also written or cowritten some of it. They used to travel and sing during the 80's or longer. I can't remember what they were called, but they wrote and sang most of their own material.
"What's that I hear, it sounds just like a trumpet--what's that I hear in the middle of the night. Is it the sound of God's angels that I hear?" I can remember bits and pieces of the rest of the song, but not enough to put it together.

The version I always heard growing up was by The Inspirations
