Shall We Gather At The River

Shall We Gather At The River presents us with a new challenge: the key of Eb. If this seems difficult at first, realize that two of the chords used (Eb and Ab) feel the same on the piano, making them easy to learn. Furthermore, we already know the third chord (Bb) from the previous song!

And, of course, here is the written out version of Shall We Gather At The River. Remember to sound happy when you play this song! Many people associate this song with funerals, because of every other song that hints at crossing a river when you die. This song is not about a river of death, but about the River of Life in Heaven! Begin trying to communicate that in your playing.
