1. Shall we gather at the river,
Where bright angel feet have trod,
With its crystal tide forever
Flowing by the throne of God?
Yes, we’ll gather at the river,
The beautiful river,
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows by the throne of God.
2. Shall we gather at the river?
No darkness where we will be,
Grace our spirits will deliver,
In its waters our remedy.
3. Here we part from one another,
I’m leaving strife and sorrow,
Soon I’ll reach that shining harbour,
Walking tall into tomorrow.
