Our eternal home,
The New Jerusalem,
Where we’ll behold the Lamb,
Seated on the throne.
The glory shining forth,
From the throne the river flows,
Encircling the throne is an emerald rainbow,
Praise from the four living creatures flows.
“Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God almighty,
Who was and is and is to come.”
Praise that will resound throughout eternity,
The twenty four elders join in laying down their crowns.
Behold the glory of the Lamb,
He is the Lamb who was slain,
For all eternity we shall be with Him,
When we as the saints in glory reign.
Reigning with the King how wonderful,
Eternally we will be so grateful.
The blood that purchased our redemption,
And brought forth our salvation,
Has washed us and cleansed us,
So now our eternal home will be with Jesus.
The streets are golden,
The Lord has prepared for us eternal mansions,
Beauty beyond compare,
Will surround us everywhere.
The Lion will lay down with the Lamb,
All are healed in the New Jerusalem,
We’ll be dressed in white garments,
As we walk through the New Jerusalem.
Without blemish and without stain,
Free from all disease and pain,
Blood purchased saints will gather,
Where prayers of incense fill the air.
What a glorious wonderful day it will be,
When we the New Jerusalem will see,
Eternally we’ll behold the Lord in all His glory,
Giving Him all the praise and all the glory.
So for now let us fix our eyes on Him,
Our wonderful Saviour, Lord and King,
Remembering always it’s for Him we’re living,
All to Jesus we are now surrendering.
Lord, you take my breath away,
One moment in your presence and I’m undone,
Awestruck in wonder as upon you I gaze,
It’s like I can visualize your glory shining like the sun.
I have sought so long to see your face,
The one who has saved me by grace,
And you meet me here revealing more to me,
As I come to you and earnestly seek.
You have said you will not hide your face,
From those who are under your grace,
Who come earnestly seeking to see,
You in the wonder of your glory.
With a grateful and thankful heart I come,
Praising your precious name,
Jesus, precious Jesus I fall down at your feet,
You’re telling me that in the heavenly places with you I’m seated.
I’m seated in the Heavenly Places with Jesus my Lord,
This is something I find hard to get my head around,
But God’s Word tells me it is true,
And Lord I have heard you echoing this too.
Lord you show me the immeasurable riches of your grace,
And I come surrendering to you all of my days,
I just can’t live for myself any longer,
Through your blood you have forever and ever brought me near.
We are lost in wonder considering your mercy and grace,
Awestruck as we catch a glimpse of your beautiful face,
And we long to see you much more clearly,
For you are the one we love so dearly.
We want to know the innermost thoughts of your heart,
Let us be for you totally set apart,
We are running after you in hot pursuit,
In and through you we have planted our roots.
We are a people destined for greater things,
For we have been forgiven of all of our sins,
And you have a plan and purpose for each of us,
For we are dying to self and living for Jesus.
How can it be that you the King of Glory can love us like you do?
We are amazed at your grace, compassion and mercy too,
To the cross you went, shedding your blood for us,
Nothing else could wash away our sins, except the blood of Jesus.
And we gaze upon you now, offering thanks and praise,
Jesus, King of glory to you our hands we raise,
There is no-one, absolutely no-one like you Lord,
With thankful hearts in praise together we gather in one accord.
