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

What A Friend We Have In Jesus

[UMH #526] by Charles Crozat Converse and Joseph Medlicott Scriven

Verse Order: V1, V2, V3

Verse 1
What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer
O what peace we often forfeit
O what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer

Verse 2
Have we trials and temptations
Is there trouble anywhere
We should never be discouraged Take it to the Lord in prayer
Can we find a friend so faithful
Who will all our sorrows share Jesus knows our every weakness
Take it to the Lord in prayer

Verse 3
Are we weak and heavy laden
Cumbered with a load of care
Precious Savior, still our refuge Take it to the Lord in prayer
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee
Take it to the Lord in prayer
In his arms he’ll take and shield thee
Thou wilt find a solace there

Trust And Obey

[UM Hymnal #467] by Rev. John Henry Sammis and Daniel Brink Towner

Verse Order: V1, C, V3, C, V4, C

Verse 1
When we walk with the Lord
In the light of His Word
What a glory He sheds on our way
While we do His good will
He abides with us still
And with all who will trust and obey

Chorus 1
Trust and obey
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus
But to trust and obey

Verse 2
Not a burden we bear
Not a sorrow we share
But our toil He doth richly repay
Not a grief nor a loss
Not a frown nor a cross
But is blessed if we trust and obey

Verse 3
But we never can prove
The delights of His love
Until all on the altar we lay
For the favor He shows And the joy He bestows
Are for those who will trust and obey

Verse 4
Then in fellowship sweet
We will sit at His feet
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way
What He says we will do
Where He sends we will go
Never fear only trust and obey

In The Garden

[UMH #314] by Charles Austin Miles

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

Chorus 1
And He walks with me
And He talks with me
And He tells me I am His own
And the joy we share as we tarry there
None other has ever known

Verse 1
I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The Son of God discloses

Verse 2
He speaks and the sound of His voice
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing

Verse 3
I’d stay in the garden with Him
Tho’ the night around me be falling
But He bids me go thro’ the voice of woe
His voice to me is calling
