Earth and heaven repeat the cry,
"Glory be to God on high."
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth;
for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away,
and the sea was no more.
And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem,
coming down out of heaven from God.
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,
"See, the home of God is among mortals.
The Lord will dwell with them;
they will be God's peoples,
and God personally will be with them;
God will wipe every tear from their eyes.
Death will be no more;
mourning and crying and pain will be no more,
for the first things have passed away." R
And the one who was seated on the throne said,
"See, I am making all things new."
Also the enthroned one said,
"Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true."
Then the Lord said to me, "It is done!
I am the Alpha and the Omega,
the beginning and the end.
To the thirsty I will give water as a gift
from the spring of the water of life.
Those who conquer will inherit these things,
and I will be their God
and they will be my children. R
