It’s as real as the air we breathe
And it is God’s precious promise;
It’s the New Jerusalem and its eternity
Where it comprises bliss.
It’s entered in by undeserved favor
And solely by God’s grace;
We are purchased at a dear price
Having run the race of faith.
It’s pristine and clear as crystal
And everything is so pure…
Streets of gold, colors of gems
With all sickness and disease cured.
Glorious light emanates from the Father
Who created us miraculously,
As we’re perfectly reconciled to Him
With vast treasures the eye can see.
Angels and their precious voices
Worshipping Him all day;
Saints washed by the blood of Christ
And pure in every way.
Jasper, topaz, beryl and sapphire
And all colors of the rainbow…
Names that are written in the Book of Life
Along with treasures He bestows.
Trees of fruit that yield forever
With the epitome of peace…
Glorified bodies gracing the kingdom
Where blessings never cease.
No more tears, no more sorrows
And no more hunger nor any pains,
As the former things have passed away
And where love and joy remains.
The Bride of Christ is prepared
Through humility and repentance,
And presented to God as spotless
When on the Lord she had placed dependence.
God’s reward is with Him
To give all according to our labour,
And blessed are those who keep His commands
And sanctified for eternal favor.
