Agnus Dei |SSA Chorus|5.5
Notes from the publisher
Play starting at 4:40.
Two years ago Ron Kean's Kyrie (P1134) was released and has become a popular festival favorite. His Agnus Dei is perhaps even more beckoning. He has cleverly intertwined ''Shall We Gather At the River.'' The juxtaposition of the traditional with his own beautiful composition.
Shall We Gather At The River
Shall we gather at the river,
Where bright angel feet have trod,
With its crystal tide forever
Flowing by the throne of God?
Yes, we'll gather at the river,
The beautiful, the beautiful river;
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows by the throne of God.
Soon we'll reach the silver river,
Soon our pilgrimage will cease;
Soon our happy hearts will quiver
With the melody of peace.
