Meter: 8 6 8 6 D

Topic: New Jerusalem, Zion

1.

The New Jerusalem will rise

When God gives the command

When He the light and truth supplies

To obey this command.

 

If we would enter through her gates

He must be wholly clean

By cleansing envy, pride, and hate

Into a holy sheen.

2.

The New Jerusalem won’t fall

A thousand years she’ll stand.

The home of all who heed God’s call

Who witness His own hand

 

Great temples on its streets will rise

The air will fill with song,

And truth will rain from heaven’s skies

As angels sing along.

3.

The New Jerusalem is built

By those with purest hearts

Who have been washed from earthly guilt

Who did not wait to start

 

To fill their lamps, to wash their robes

To watch and to prepare.

In every region of the globe

Until God calls them there.
