Shall we gather at the riverB
Where bright angel feet have trodC
With its crystal tide foreverB
Flowing by the throne of GodC

Yes we'll gather at the riverB
The beautiful the beautiful riverB
Gather with the saints at the riverB
That flows by the throne of GodC

On the margin of the riverB
Washing up its silver sprayD
We will walk and worship everB
All the happy golden dayD

Yes we'll gather at the riverB
The beautiful the beautiful riverB
Gather with the saints at the riverB
That flows by the throne of GodC

On the bosom of the riverB
Where the Saviour king we ownE
We shall meet and sorrow neverB

And provide a robe and crown ChoF

At the smiling of the riverB
Rippling with the Saviour's faceA
Saints whom death will never severB
Lift their songs of saving grace ChoF

Yes we'll gather at the riverB
The beautiful the beautiful riverB
Gather with the saints at the riverB
That flows by the throne of GodC

Soon we'll reach the shining riverB
Soon our pilgrimage will ceaseA
Soon our happy hearts will quiverB
With the melody of peace ChoF
-
Yes we'll gather at the riverB
The beautiful the beautiful riverB
Gather with the saints at the riverB
That flows by the throne of GodC
