Full Text

1 Over the river I'm going,
Beyond where the pearly gates stand;
Over the cold icy billows,
To live in a fair sunny land;
My Father has built me a mansion,
More precious than silver and gold;
Yes, over the river I'm going,
To where there are pleasures untold.

Refrain:
The angels there will welcome me
With harps and crowns of gold;
Yes! over the river I'm going,
To where there are pleasures untold.

2 Over the river I'm going,
To meet, in the land of the blest,
Loved ones, who long have been waiting,
To welcome me home to my rest;
The world with its pleasures no longer
My spirit in bondage can hold,
For over the river I'm going,
To where there are pleasures untold. [Refrain]

3 Over the river I'm going,
Oh, seek not to draw me aside;
See! the bright angels are waiting
To carry me over the tide;
My Saviour is there to receive me,
And shield me from suffering and cold,
Yes, over the river I'm going,
To where there are pleasures untold. [Refrain]
