I saw a new Heaven and earth,
As the first ones had disappeared;
For now I have seen a new birth,
The glory of God is revered.
I saw the light of a new dawn,
Everything looking pretty;
While the sea now has been gone,
As I saw the holy city.
Jerusalem dressed like a bride,
Preparing to meet her husband;
And in the process to abide,
Whatever her groom will command.
I heard a loud voice from the throne,
That God is living with mankind;
No longer will man be alone,
And man will be able to find.
No longer will we ever roam,
Because we will be His people;
Since God will be making His home,
As we worship in His temple.
He will wipe the tears from your eyes,
There will not be any more death;
For our God is very wise,
And is helping you through each breath.
There will not be any more grief,
No more sorrow, crying or pain;
Because the strength of your belief,
Will match all the love that you gain.
For He is making it all new,
As the beginning and the end;
Since His words are faithful and true,
While being your God and friend.
The end to all toils and strife,
For He will be giving you drink;
Water from the fountain of life,
With all the compassion to think.
You will be the children of God,
No longer as a slave to sin;
Being cured where you were once flawed,
As cleansed and purified within
