547. The Kingdom of God

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."
