‘Shall We Gather at the River’ (Burl Ives)

You don’t mind if I get on a Burl Ives roll, do you? His mellow voice was perfect for these good old hymns. Shall We Gather at the River is one of my favorites; and the haunting photograph doesn’t hurt, either.

God grant we never have to do without prayer–or hymns.
