Can anyone help me find the lyrics to this song? Is an old song that I heard as a child. It must be from the 1940s.

The Light On The River
Written By Elmer Johnson in the Chord of Eb

Verse 1
There's a light on the bank of the river,
For the souls who have trusted God's love;
It will brighten death's chilly dark waters,
'Tis the light from the palace above.

Verse 2
When we come to the end of the journey,
And the sun of this life has gone down;
Then the Savior, the Light of the river,
Will direct us safe home to our crown.

Chorus
O the Light on the bank of the river,
What a blessing It is to the soul;
It will guide us safe over life's journey,
To heaven, sweet heaven our goal.

I have the sheet music to this song and would be glad to get it to you if you want to leave your email
