#2 In 1864, Robert Lowry wrote a hymn about Revelation 22:1-5. According to this hymn, where shall we gather?

At the River

The hymn is “Shall We Gather at the River” (#723 in our hymnal).  Verse 1 and the refrain are:

Shall we gather at the river, where bright angel feet have trod, with its crystal tide forever flowing by the throne of God?

Yes we’ll gather at the river, the beautiful, the beautiful river.  Gather with the saints at the river that flows by the throne of God.

 

It is inspired by Revelation 22:1-5…

And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.  And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
KJV
