3437. John Saw the Heav'n and Earth Made New

1. John saw the Heav’n and earth made new,
The first had passed away,
The holy city coming down,
The new Jerusalem.

2. And God Himself shall dwell with men,
And wipe away all tears,
There is no sorrow, pain or death,
Throughout the coming years.

3. Behold, I make all things anew,
These faithful words are true,
To him who overcometh sin,
On earth with God shall rule.

4. In beautiful Jerusalem,
God’s glory gives it light,
All kings and nations walk in it,
For there shall be no night.
