Tafe mei he taloni ‘o Langí.

Holo ai e lo‘imata,
Ngalo ai ē ongosia.

Shall We Gather at the River

Robert Lowry ; Tune: HANSON PLACE, Meter: 87.87 with Refrain [BUPA 40 vs 1, 4 Refrain] The United Methodist Hymnal 723

1. Shall we gather at the river, 
 where bright angel feet have trod, 
 with its crystal tide forever 
 flowing by the throne of God? 

Refrain: 
 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. 

 2. On the margin of the river, 
 washing up its silver spray, 
 we will walk and worship ever, 
 all the happy golden day. 
 (Refrain) 

 3. Ere we reach the shining river, 
 lay we every burden down; 
 grace our spirits will deliver, 
 and provide a robe and crown. 
 (Refrain) 

 4. Soon we'll reach the shining river, 
 soon our pilgrimage will cease; 
 soon our happy hearts will quiver 
 with the melody of peace. 
 (Refrain)
