Don Fortner

(Tune: All Hail the Power #42 CM)


Behold, what glory shall appear

To our awak’ning eyes!

The earth and sea shall pass away.

Christ shall divide the skies!


The Church descends from heav’n above,

Adorned, all white with grace,

The New Jerusalem comes down,

Bride to the Prince of Peace!


Heaven and earth shall pass away.

All former things shall cease.

Omnipotence creates for us

A world of righteousness.


Tenderly, God shall dry our tears

And we shall weep no more,

For sins, and pains, and griefs, and fears,

And death shall be no more!
