Revelation 14 and "For all the Saints"

A favorite hymn of mine from the Trinity Hymnal that we sang tonight is 'For All the Saints', a hymn with a melody and lyrics that are just beautiful.  I'm particularly in awe of the lyrics from the last verse:

From earth's wide bounds,
from ocean's farthest coast,
Through gates of pearl
streams in the countless host,

Singing to Father,
Son, and Holy Ghost,
Alleluia, Alleluia!

The verses speak of the gathering of the saints from the furthest reaches, brought in through the "gates of pearl" and singing praises to the Triune God.  Beautiful hymn and such a blessing to sing this during time of worship.
