Lo, What a Glorious Sight Appeared

  1. Lo, what a glorious sight appeared
    before admiring eyes:
    the former things all passed away,
    the former earth and skies.
    From heav’n the new Jerus’lem came,
    for Christ, as bride prepared.
    A voice resounding from the throne
    these wondrous things declared:
  2. “Now God has come to dwell with men,
    and moved his blest abode.
    His people they shall be at last,
    and he shall be their God.
    His gracious hand shall wipe the tears
    from ev’ry weeping eye,
    for pain and grief shall be no more,
    and death itself shall die.”
  3. The One who sat upon the throne
    said, “I make all things new!
    Write down the words that you have heard,
    for they are firm and true.
    It is all done, and by my pow’r
    is paradise restored.
    I am the First, and I the Last,
    the one eternal Lord.
  4. “Come, all who thirst! To you I will
    my healing water give.
    Drink from my fountain without price
    and so forever live.
    Blest is the man who, conquering,
    his heritage has won,
    for I will be his faithful God
    and he shall be my son.
  5. “As for the vile and faithless ones,
    those who my will defy
    are thrown into the burning lake,
    and death itself shall die.”
    We, too, shall stand before the throne;
    then shall our names be found
    recorded in the Book of Life.
    How shall our joy abound!
