When We Cross The Vale Of Shadow


When we cross the vale of shadow and are safe on Canann’s shore,
We will gather by the river over there;
When we meet to sing the praise of Him who lives forevermore,
We will gather by the river over there.

Chorus:
We will gather by the river over there, (over there,)
Where the tree of life is blooming bright and fair;
There in robes of spotless white, in the city of delight,
We will gather by the river over there.

We will meet with those who’ve left us, and have joined that glorious band,
We will gather by the river over there;
We will know no more of parting when we reach that happy land,
We will gather by the river over there. [Chorus]

We will meet our dear Redeemer, and shall see His loving face,
We will gather by the river over there;
O the blessedness that there awaits a sinner saved by grace,
We will gather by the river over there. [Chorus]

Ye victorious hosts of Jesus, shout aloud the joyful strain,
We will gather by the river over there;
Let your praises vie with angels while we sing the glad refrain,
We will gather by the river over there. [Chorus]
