‘Shall We Gather at the River?’

There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the Most High.  –Psalm 46:4

I’ve encountered this hymn, as background music in this or that thing I was watching, several times lately–which can only mean the Lord wants me to post it.

Shall We Gather at the River–a well-loved classic hymn, and I wish I knew who these singers are, who sing it so beautifully. When I try to sing it, my voice breaks. That’s been happening to me lately whenever I try to sing a hymn. I hope I’m not turning into a softy.
