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]
