1 Over the river voices I hear,
Sweet are the songs they're singing to me;
Calling me homeward in glory to be,
O how I'm longing their faces to see!
I'm longing to meet them, longing to greet them,
Longing to join in praise unto thee;
O loving Savior, acquainted with sorrow,
Hast the glad day when united we'll be.
2 Over the river mansions I see,
All are aglow with new radiancy;
Glorified ones who from sorrow are free,
In bliss and beauty forever will be. [Chorus]
3 Over the river; when shall it be,
When shall I hear, "The Master calls thee"?
Calls thee to enter his mansions above,
Mansions of glory, of service, of love. [Chorus]Source: Song Praises: for the Sunday school, Christian workers' meeting, prayer meeting, general song services (1st ed.) #34
