God and sinners reconciled!”

Join the triumph of the skies;

4. I Will Wait For You by Jodee Lewis

Yet this I call to mind,
and therefore I have hope
Because of the Lord’s great love,
we are not consumed
Your compassions never fail;
they are new every morning
and I will wait for you

7. The Revelation of Jesus Christ by Cam Huxford

I saw a new heaven and a new earth,
for the first had passed away.
I saw a new city, Jerusalem;
a bride on her wedding day.
I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,
“look at the dwelling place of God.”
He will dwell with them, they will be his people,
and He will be their God.

Wipe away every tear from our eyes.
Death will be no more.
