There'll be a Light for me at the river,
Guiding my boat across the dark foam.
Down thru the valley, past the dark shadows,
Jesus, my Light, will guide me safe home.
2. When I reach the banks of the river,
Where the chilly waters murmur their song;
Nothing to harm me, nothing alarms me,
While I am sailing to my new home.
3. Down by the river soon I'll be standing,
Bidding farewell to friends left below.
Sailing with Jesus, I know that He will
Be the Light at the river for me.
