774. Shall We Gather at the River

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

Refrain:
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.

2 On the margin of the river,
Washing up its silver spray,
We will talk and worship ever,
All the happy golden day. (Refrain)

3 Ere we reach the shining river,
Lay we eve'y burden down;
Grace our spirits will deliver,
And provide a robe and crown. (Refrain)

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