10778. Beside The Beautiful River

1 In the heavenly clime we shall meet some time,
Beside the beautiful river;
We shall find the joy that has no alloy,
Beside the beautiful river.

Beside the beautiful river we’ll stray,
In the glorious light of eternity’s day;
And with saved ones we’ll praise our Redeemer for aye,
Beside the beautiful river.

2 With the pure and blest we shall sweetly rest,
Beside the beautiful river;
With all conflicts o’er, trials come no more,
Beside the beautiful river. [Refrain]

3 We shall learn the song of the blood-washed throng,
Beside the beautiful river;
While long ages roll, we shall Christ extol
Beside the beautiful river. [Refrain]
