SHALL WE GATHER AT THE RIVER?
Shall we gather at the river?
Where bright angel feet have trod
With its crystal tide forever
Flowing by the throne of God?
Yes, we'll gather at the river
The beautiful, the beautiful river
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows by the throne of God
Ere we reach the shining river
Lay we ev'ry burden down
Grace our spirits will deliver
And provide a robe and crown (chorus)
Soon we'll reach the shining river
Soon our pilgrims will cease
Soon our happy hearts will quiver
With the melody of peace
(repeat chorus twice)
