Shall we gather at the river

Shall we gather at the river
Where bright angel feet have trod
With its crystal tide for ever
Flowing by the throne of God?

Yes we'll gather at the river, The
beautiful, the beautiful river
Gather with the saints at the river, That
flows by the throne of God

Ere we reach the shining river
Lay we every burden down
Grace our spirits will deliver And
provide a robe and crown.

Soon we'll reach the silver river,
Soon our pilgrimage will cease
Soon our happy hearts will quiver
With the melody of peace
