Full Text

1 We are waiting by the river,
Strong and weak, and young and old,
Till the boatman comes to bear us
To the far-off streets of gold.

Chorus:
We are waiting by the river,
we are waiting, you and I;
One by one our friends are crossing,
We shall join them by and by.

2 We are waiting by the river,
And we may not know how near
Are our footsteps, glad or weary,
To its waters still and clear. [Chorus]

3 We are waiting by the river,
And at most 't will not be long
Till we cross the silent waters,
Till we hear the angels' song. [Chorus]
