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

    Chorus
    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.

    Chorus
    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 3
    Ere we reach the shining river,
    Lay we every burden down;
    Grace our spirits will deliver,
    And provide a robe and crown.

    Chorus
    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 4
    At the shining of the river,
    Mirror of the Saviour's face,
    Saints, whom death will never sever,
    Raise their songs of saving grace.

    Chorus
    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.
