 1  When the thousand years are ended,
       and death is cast away,
    The first heav'n and the first earth
       in fire shall pass away.
    From new heaven to new earth shall come
       the new Jerusalem.
    And the dwelling of the Father 
       at last shall be with men.

 2  Like a bride dressed for the bridegroom
       the city of God shall be.
    Her walls shall shine like jasper
       of gold shall be her streets.
    Her gates are twelve in number
       an angel at each one.
    And each of her foundations
       is set with precious stones.

 3  From the Father's throne, a river
       as clear as crystal flows,
    And on its banks forever
       the tree of life shall grow.
    Its leaves shall heal the nations,
       its fruit shall be for food.
    And there shall be no more curse there,
       but all shall be for good.

 4  They shall need no sun by day there,
       nor moon to shine by night,
    For the glory of their God and
       the Lamb shall be its light.
    His saints shall reign forever,
       from death they shall be free.
    God will dwell among His people,
       for all eternity.
