SHALL WE GATHER AT THE RIVER

C Shall we gather at the river, G7 Where bright angel feet have trod, C With its crystal tide forever G7 C F C Flowing by the throne of God? Chorus: F C Yes we'll gather by the river, G7 C The beautiful, the beautiful river; F C Gather with the saints by the river G G7 C 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 we'll reach the shining river, Soon our pilgrimage will cease; Soon our happy hearts will quiver, With the melody of peace. Alternative chords

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. Chorus
