Revelation Advent Calendar - Chapter 21

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, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away." (Revelation 21:1-4)

I hope you like your songs about the afterlife beautiful and contemplative. Also, I hope you like them very loud. This song is both! (Jerusalem is one of the best Christian metal bands that never truly got a chance to make it big.)

One thousand years His reign shall be
And every eye shall be the one to see
His glory in New Jerusalem
For all eternity
Our King to be
Our hearts we swear to You

One thousand years King Jesus shall be
Our Lord for all eternity
To see His glory
In New Jerusalem
We bend our knee
We make our plea
Our hearts we swear to You

Behold the New Jerusalem
Sent down from God above
The dreams of all His Saints fulfilled
The city of His love
And all the angels sing for her
Their songs are ever heard
In the city of our Savior
The city of His Word

Life giver, live in us
Life giver, shine in us

Sorcerers and murders
And all who love a lie
They have no part within the gates
None stains the holy bride
The city has no sun or moon
No need for stars so bright
The glory of the lamb is all
Jesus is the light
