Whoever asks for a blessing,
Will be blessed by the God of Truth;
Those within His Word that do cling,
Will not ever become uncouth.
Whoever makes a commitment,
Swears to an oath within the land;
Will turn into their testament,
All of which the Lord would demand.
All past troubles are forgotten,
That would be hidden from their eyes;
Discarding all that is rotten,
That would be wearing a disguise.
He will create a new Heaven,
Along with creating a new earth;
All past things will be forgiven,
That will be bringing a new birth.
Be glad and rejoice forever,
In what He prepares to create;
A delight that will not sever,
A joy that will not hesitate.
Rejoice about Jerusalem,
And be glad about His people;
Because He will never condemn,
Enabled to know the Gospel.
Screaming and crying is not heard,
No longer the mournful pity;
All because of joy with His Word,
That is spoken through the city.
No longer an infant that dies,
Or men or women dying young;
For all have everlasting lives,
For all the praising that is sung.
They will build houses where to live,
Planting vineyards and eating fruit;
From the ground the nutrients give,
From a matured plant with deep root.
Wolves and lambs will feed together,
Like oxen, lions will eat straw;
No harm to birds of a feather,
As they will abide by His Law.
