Shall we gather at the river
Where bright angel feet have trod
With its crystal tide forever
Flowing from 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 from the Throne of God

On the margin of the river
Washing up its silver spray
We shall walk and worship ever
All the happy golden day

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

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

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

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

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