my life is almost over,
i’ll rest where the sweet water flows,
beside a peaceful river,
ne-ver more sorrows to know.
beautiful heaven awaits me,
a man-sion i have been told,
free from all cares and troubles,
d a7 d
i’ll rest where the sweet water flows.
the day draws near for my parting,
to a better land i want to go,
the sun will be shining forever,
up there where the sweet water flows.
