598. River of Zion

1 In thy clear, transparent glow,
Peaceful, cleansing river,
In thy sparkling beauty flow
O’er my heart forever.

By thy shore, oh, let me be,
Soul refining river;
Ever let me drink of thee,
Thirst no more forever.

2 There is music in thy wave,
Calmest, purest river;
In thy waters let me bathe
Ever and forever. [Refrain]

3 In thy bosom’s crystal sea,
Gentle, tranquil river,
Let my spirit’s image be
Mirrored there forever. [Refrain]

4 There behold life’s fragrant tree
Blooming by the river;
’Neath its shade my walk shall be
Ever and forever. [Refrain]
