Shall We Gather At The River

[United Methodist Hymnal #723]
by Robert Lowry

Verse Order: V1, C, V2, C, V3, C, V5, C

Verse 1
Shall we gather at the river
Where bright angel feet have trod
With its crystal tide forever
Flowing by the throne of God

Chorus 1
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

Verse 2
On the margin of the river
Washing up its silver spray
We will talk and worship ever
All the happy golden day

Verse 3
Ere we reach the shining river
Lay we ev’ry burden down
Grace our spirits will deliver
And provide a robe and crown

Verse 4
At the smiling of the river Mirror of the Savior’s face
Saints whom death will never sever
Lift their songs of saving grace

Verse 5
Soon we’ll reach the shining river
Soon our pilgrimage will cease
Soon our happy hearts will quiver
With the melody of peace
