Over the river my loved ones have passed,
Over the beautiful river;
Safe in the mansions of glory at last,
Now they are watching for me.

Refrain

Watching today,
Watching today;
Loved ones are waiting,
Are waiting my coming today.

Over the river with Jesus they rest,
Over the beautiful river;
Learning and singing the songs of the blest,
Yet they are watching for me.

Refrain

Over the river that sparkles so clear,
Over the beautiful river;
Oft in the silence their voices I hear,
Still they are watching for me.

Refrain

Over the river, to sever no more,
Over the beautiful river;
Soon I shall meet them on yonder bright shore,
Loved ones now watching for me.

Refrain
