Lyrics
SHALL WE GATHER AT THE RIVER?

(Eb)Shall we gather at the river,
(Bb7)Where bright angel feet have trod,
(Eb)With its crystal tide forever
Flowing (Bb)by the (Bb7)throne of (Eb)God?

(Ab)Yes, we’ll gather at the (Eb)river,
The (Bb7)beautiful, the beautiful (Eb)river;
(Ab)Gather with the saints at the (Eb)river
That (Bb)flows by the (Bb7)throne of (Eb)God.

On the bosom of the river,
Where the Savior King we own,
We shall meet, and sorrow never,
"Neath the glory of the throne.

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 every burden down;
Grace our spirits will deliver,
And provide a robe and crown.

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.

Soon we’ll reach the shining river,
Soon our pilgrimage will cease;
Soon our happy hearts will quiver
With the melody of peace.

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.
