Waiting By The River

Lyrics altered by A. M., Jr.
We are waiting by the river,
We are watching by the shore,
Only waiting for the Boatman,
Soon He'll come to bear us o'er.
Tho' the mists hang o'er the river,
And its billows loudly roar,
Yet we hear the songs of angels,
Wafted from the other shore.
Of the bright celestial city
We have caught such radiant gleams
Of its tow'rs like dazzling sunlight,
With its sweet and peaceful streams.
Oh, the beauty of those mansions
Far outshine the brightest sun,
Where no cloud will ever darken
What our Father has begun.
He has called for many loved ones,
We have seen them leave our side;
With our Saviour we shall meet them
When we, too, have crossed the tide.
When we've passed the vale of shadows
With its dark and chilling tide,
In that bright and glorious city
We shall evermore abide.
Oh, to see Him face to face,
Just to praise His saving grace!
And thro' all eternity
I'll sing my great Redeemer's praise!
