This is a recitation done by the Singing Echoes, I think. I haven't been able to find the complete rendition. Any help appreciated!

In a methodical look I couldn't find Beyond the Next Hill in the Singing Echoes' discography or any gospel song by that title.
Can you supply us with any of the lyrics or other clues to help us identify your request - Thanks for the challenge

AS I STOOD BY THE BEDSIDE OF ONE I LOVE DEAR.
MY SORROWS WAS LIFTED, BY WORDS I STILL HEAR.
HER HANDS MADE A GESTURE, HER VOICE WAS SO WEAK.
SHE MOTIONED ME CLOSER, AND STARTED TO SPEAK

RECITATION:
OH I WANT YOU TO MISS ME IN A WAY I SUPPOSE
BUT NOT TO BE SORRY, THE TIME'S COME TO GO.
WE'LL HAVE A REUNION AND OH WHAT A THRILL.
THAT FINAL HOMECOMING, JUST BEYOND THE LAST HILL.
LET THE HAND OF DEATH BECKON, WHY I'M NOT AFRAID,
THE VICTORY IS MINE, OVER DEATH AND THE GRAVE.
I'VE LIVED FOR THE MASTER, I'VE WALKED IN HIS WILL.
I'M READY TO MEET HIM, JUST BEYOND THE LAST HILL.
I SERVED HIM WITH PATIENCE, LIKE HE TOLD ME TO DO.
AND IN SPITE OF MY TRIALS, I'VE TRIED BE TRUE.
NOW IT'S JUST ABOUT OVER, AND I KNOW IT'S HIS WILL.
I CAN SEE THE LAST SUNSET, I SEE THE LAST HILL.
BUT THAT LAST HILL IS NOTHING, WITH THE LORD BY MY SIDE.
JUST A FEW STEPS TOGETHER, THEN MY SOUL WILL TAKE FLIGHT.
ALREADY THE ANGELS ARE CIRCLING MY BED.
AND A GREAT LIGHT IS SHINING, JUST OVER MY HEAD.
AND I SENSE THE DEATH ANGELS, BUT I HAVE NO FEAR.
FOR MUSIC FROM HEAVEN, ALREADY HEAR.
SO DON'T WEEP FOR ME CHILDREN, WHEN MY BODY LIES STILL.
FOR HEAVEN IS YONDER, JUST BEYOND THE LAST HILL.
NOW WHO'S COMING TO MEET ME, IN A ROBE WHITE AS SNOW,
WHY I THINK IT'S THE SAVIOR OH I'M SO ANXIOUS TO GO.
THERE'S A VOICE SWEETLY CALLING AND I BEND TO IT'S WILL
NOW THE SUN'S GOING DOWN, JUST BEYOND THE LAST HILL.
NOW WHAT'S THAT HE'S SAYING, OH COULD I BE INSANE/
WHY HE'S HOLDING A CROWN, AND HE'S CALLING MY NAME.
OH MY HEART LEAPS WITH GLADNESS, MY SOUL DOES IT THRILL.
MY FIRST GLIMPSE OF HEAVEN, AS I CLIMB THE LAST HILL,

(TAG)
MY FIRST GLIMPSE OF HEAVEN, AS I CLIMB THE LAST HILL.

Thank you so very much. My daughter-in-law's mother is gravely ill and asks that this be part of her home-going service. I'm glad I can honor her request.
