And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Revelation 21:4
Eternal thirst You satisfy,
Upon the cross, You chose to die.
Jesus, our King – the Last, the First,
You satisfy eternal thirst!
Water of life, freely given,
Thank You, Lord, that we’re forgiven!
Prepare Your church to stand through strife.
Guide us to Your water of life.
You go before – You are the Way.
We’re longing for that hopeful day,
To finally walk through open door.
You are the Way, You’ve gone before.
No more death and no more sorrow.
No more questions for tomorrow!
Enjoying everlasting breath,
No more sorrow, no more death!
The former things are passed away,
No more chaos or disarray!
A myriad of angels sing,
All passed away, those former things.
No aching tears, nor any pain.
A constant Light, You will sustain.
Remember not forgotten years,
Not any pain, or aching tears.
These words of trust – faithful and true.
Living only to worship You.
Our perfect Rock, so right and just.
Faithful and true – Your Word we Trust.
You beckon, “Come!” We hear Your voice,
With joyful choir, our lips rejoice!
No second thought can take us from,
The voice we hear. You beckon, “Come!”
We worship You, our souls ablaze,
Hope of Glory, receive our praise.
Son of David, pure hearts anew,
Our souls ablaze to worship You.
Bright Morning Star, You took our cup,
Forever death is swallowed up!
Eternal Love is who You are,
You took my cup, Bright Morning Star.
O Prince of Peace, in grace You reign.
Worthy is the Lamb that was slain!
O Coming One and great High Priest,
In grace You reign, our Prince of Peace.
Most Holy place, all things made new,
Shining city, come into view
We enter through Your throne of Grace,
All things made new, most Holy place.
Calm and secure, safe open gates,
Brilliant beauty for us awaits.
Glory of God, You will endure,
Safe open gates, calm and secure.
Lord Jesus – come! Come quickly Lord!
The faithful sing in one accord,
With joyful dance and beating drum,
Come quickly Lord! Lord Jesus – come!
