Topic: New Jerusalem, Zion

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.

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.

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.
