The Beautiful River
Text: Robert Lowry; John Newton and Charles Wesley
Music: Robert Lowy arr. Michael Adamczyk
1.
Shall we gather at the river.
Where bright angel feet have trod.
With its crystal tide forever,
Flowing by the throne of God?
Yes, we’ll gather by the river,
The beautiful, the beautiful river;
Gather with the saints at the river,
That flows from the throne of God.
2.
See the streams of living water,
Springing from eternal love.
We’ll supply the sons and daughters,
And all want of fear remove.
Who can faint. while such a river,
Ever shall out thirst assuage?
Grace which like the Lord our Giver,
Flows on from age to age.
3.
Ere we reach the shining river,
Lay we every burden down.
Grace, Hid spirit will deliver,
And provide a robe and crown.
Yes, we’ll gather by the river,
The beautiful, the beautiful river;
Gather with the saints at the river,
That flows from the throne of God.
4.
Peace be to this congregation;
Peace to every heart therein.
Peace, to earnest of salvation;
Peace the fruit of conquered sin.
Peace that speaks the heavenly Giver;
Peace, to the worldly minds unknown;
Peace, that floweth like a river,
From the eternal source alone.
