Shall We Gather At the River

Misc. Gospel

 C
 Shall we gather at the river,
 G7
 Where bright angel feet have trod,
 C
 With its crystal tide forever
 G7C
Flowing by the throne of God?

Chorus:

 FC
Yes well gather by the river,
 G7C
The beautiful, the beautiful river;
 FC
 Gather with the saints by the river
 GG7C
That flows by the throne of God.

On the bosom of the river,

Where the Saviour King we own,

We shall meet, and sorrow never,

Neath the glory of the throne.


Soon well reach the shining river,

Soon our pilgrimage will cease;

Soon our happy hearts will quiver,

With the melody of peace.

SHALL WE GATHER AT THE RIVER

(A) Shall we gather at the river,
(E) Where bright angel feet have trod,
(A) With its crystal tide forever
Flowing (E) by the throne of (A) God?

Chorus:
(D) Yes, we will gather at the (A) river,
The (E) beautiful, the beautiful (A) river;
(D) Gather with the saints at the (A) river
That (E) flows by the throne of (A) God.

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

Chorus

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

Chorus

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