The River

image

I want to meet you by the river
Where the swift whitewater flows
And I will walk beside you
While Jack Frost nips at your nose
And when we reach the river
And we’ve sung that blessed tune
Hand in hand we’ll vow that we
Will cross that river soon

Yes we’ll gather at the river
Downtown to the river to pray
The beautiful the beautiful river
And peace will attend our way

I want to wade into the river
And be immersed beneath its waves
And I want you there beside me
Though I know only Jesus saves
But if I’m raised to new life
I want it to be with you
And when I finally cross that river
I’ll wait for you to cross it too

Yes we’ll gather at the river
Downtown to the river to pray
The beautiful the beautiful river
And peace will attend our way

Oh I can’t wait to cross that river
And stand on the farther shore
Where we’ll be always in the spirit
And we will part never more
Hand in hand we’ll sing the story
We lived on the other side
How I met you down by the river
And we lived and loved and died

Yes we’ll gather at the river
Downtown to the river to pray
The beautiful the beautiful river
And peace will attend our way
