Shall We Gather at the River – Randy Travis

Prayables Pick: Best Religious Music

Randy Travis did a musical project of traditional hymns. “Shall We Gather at the River” is one of the songs in the collection. He says that he was not raised on the Good Book and religious music was not a part of his early life. You’d never know it from the way Randy sings “Shall We Gather at the River.” Every inch of his body and soul is evident in this Prayables pick for best religious music. Stir up some memories, or hear it for the first time. Give praise with Randy Travis and his band as they perform “Shall We Gather at the River.”

Shall We Gather at the River Lyrics – Randy Travis

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 at the river,

the beautiful, the beautiful river;

gather with the saints at the river

that flows by the throne of God.


On the margin of the river,

washing up its silver spray,

we will walk and worship ever,

all the happy golden day.



Ere we reach the shining river,

lay we every burden down;

grace our spirits will deliver,

and provide a robe and crown.



Soon we’ll reach the shining river,

soon our pilgrimage will cease;


soon our happy hearts will quiver

with the melody of peace.


Composer: Robert Lowry
