Sunday Drive: Shall We Gather at the River

With weeping they shall come,
and with consolations I will lead them back.
I will let them walk by brooks of water,
in a straight path in which they shall not stumble;
their life shall become like a watered garden,
and they shall never languish again.

I like this song a lot. Believe it or not Russ I think the first time I EVER heard it was when I watched "Angels in America" toward the end a group of Mormons were singing it on a street corner where Meryl Streep joins in with them.
You have to understand I was raised catholic (from which I'm still recovering from) and we never heard or sang songs like this. Thanks for this lovely tune.

I'm glad you like, Stan. It's almost true to say that these lovely old hymns are part of the landscape down here, the background of our culture.
