(Lyrics) New Jerusalem Vers 1, 2, 3 & 4
Words and Music by Leslie (aka Jesse) Hughes ©
(Adapted from Revelation Chapters 21 & 22)
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth
For the first heaven and the first earth had passed away
And there was no longer any sea
I saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem
Coming down out of heaven from God
Prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying
"Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them
They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God
He will wipe every tear from their eyes
There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain
For the old order of things has passed away."
He who was seated on the throne said
"I am making everything new!" Then he said
"Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."
He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega
The Beginning and the End
To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost
From the spring of the water of life
He who overcomes will inherit all this
And I will be his God and he will be my son.

I did not see a temple in the city
Because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple
The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it
For the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp
The nations will walk by its light
And the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it
On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there
The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it

Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life
As clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb
Down the middle of the great street of the city
On each side of the river stood the tree of life
Bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month
And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations
No longer will there be any curse
The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city
And his servants will serve him
They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads
There will be no more night
They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun
For the Lord God will give them light
And they will reign for ever and ever (Build Finale)
