Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 When we cross the vale of shadow and are safe on Canann's shore,
We will gather by the river over there;
When we meet to sing the praise of Him who lives forevermore,
We will gather by the river over there.

Chorus:
We will gather by the river over there, (over there,)
Where the tree of life is blooming bright and fair;
There in robes of spotless white, in the city of delight,
We will gather by the river over there.

2 We will meet with those who've left us, and have joined that glorious band,
We will gather by the river over there;
We will know no more of parting when we reach that happy land,
We will gather by the river over there. [Chorus]

3 We will meet our dear Redeemer, and shall see His loving face,
We will gather by the river over there;
O the blessedness that there awaits a sinner saved by grace,
We will gather by the river over there. [Chorus]

4 Ye victorious hosts of Jesus, shout aloud the joyful strain,
We will gather by the river over there;
Let your praises vie with angels while we sing the glad refrain,
We will gather by the river over there. [Chorus]
