74 A Song of the Heavenly City

Refrain:

AllBy the river stood the tree of life,
with healing for all the nations.

1I saw no temple in the city,
for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty
and the Lamb.

2And the city has no need of sun or moon
to shine upon it,
for the glory of God is its light,
and its lamp is the Lamb.

3By its light the nations shall walk,
and the rulers of the earth
shall bring their glory into it.

4Its gates shall never be shut by day,
nor shall there be any night;
they shall bring into it
the glory and honour of the nations.

5I saw the river of the water of life,
bright as crystal,
flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb.

6And either side of the river stood the tree of life,
yielding its fruit each month,
and the leaves of the tree
were for the healing of the nations.

7The throne of God and of the Lamb shall be there,
and his servants shall worship him;
and they shall see his face
and his name shall be on their foreheads.

Revelation 21.22-26; 22.1, 2b, d, 3b, 4

AllTo the One who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be blessing and honour and glory and might,
for ever and ever. Amen.
