1. Over the river they call me,
Friends that are dear to my heart;
Soon shall I meet them in glory,
Never, no never to part.
Over the river to Eden,
Home to their dwelling so fair;
Angels will carry me safely.
Jesus will welcome me there.
2. Over the river they call me,
Hark, ’tis their voices I hear,
Borne on the wings of the twilight,
Murmuring softly and clear. [Refrain]
3. Over the river, how lovely,
There is no sorrow nor night;
There they are walking with Jesus,
Clothed in His garment of light. [Refrain]
4. Over the river they call me,
Watching with glad, beaming eyes;
Over the river I’m coming,
Joyful my spirit replies. [Refrain]
