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.
....song in the public domain
And yes, they gather at the river...boaters gathered on the Nantahala River that runs through North Carolina.
But this gathering is not the river as mentioned in the above hymn. Nor is the next one...
As beautiful as this river is, it cannot hold a candle to the river that flows by the throne of God. I pray we all meet there together someday. Blessings to you and yours on this Lord's Day!
