Shall We Gather at the River?
Words and Music by Robert Lowry

Revelation 22:1
"And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as
crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb."

          Shall we gather at the river,
          Where bright angel feet have trod;
          With its crystal tide forever,
          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.

          On the bosom of the river,
          Where the Savior King we own,
          We shall meet and sorrow never,
          'Neath the glory of the throne.

            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.

          Ere we reach the shining river,
          Lay we ev'ry 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.

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

            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.
