I saw a new Heaven and earth,
Because the old ones disappeared;
In preparing for the new birth,
Through planning that God engineered.
Then I saw the Holy City,
It came in view at a new dawn;
The bride of Christ looking pretty,
Sitting down where the sea had gone.
Dressed like a bride who was prepared,
Coming down from God in Heaven;
With her husband a life be shared,
And the Father favor given.
There was a loud voice being heard,
God is living with the humans;
As it is written in the Word,
His home with them as in His plans.
Because they will be His people,
And God Himself will be with them;
For their belief in the Gospel,
Nonbelievers He will condemn.
From their eyes He will wipe each tear,
Every illness He will cure;
As He will calm every fear,
There will not be death any more.
There will not be any more grief,
No more crying and without pain;
To disappear for their belief,
With only pure thoughts in the brain.
He will make everything new,
As the beginning and the end;
For these words are faithful and true,
Not just your God but as your friend.
No need to worry about strife,
Nor ever worry about thirst;
He will give you water of life,
While in His Word be well versed.
Everyone wins victory,
With having their firm salvation;
Blest through the benedictory,
For building a strong foundation.
