The River
(singing)
Shall we gather at the river
The beautiful, the beautiful river
gather with the saints at the river
that flows by the Throne of God
and all my friends are at the river
all my old dead friends
who I miss so much
and they’re waving to me, across the river
they got there and they’re waiting for me
I only have to go a little bit further
and then I’ll be dancing and singing
and I won’t struggle and I won’t curse
I’ll be gathering with the saints at the river
just like the song says
and we’ll all be happy and joyous
and we won’t be sad or mad or discriminated against
and there won’t be no rich or poor
and all the poets will be there
speaking in tongues
and we will all understand them
(singing)
and freedom is coming, freedom is coming
freedom is coming, freedom is coming
and we all shout:
oh yes I know
oh yes I know
oh yes I know
oh yes I know
freedom is coming!
and then I wake up.
– Mary Getlein
