Sunday Reflections (13) -

Listen HERE as you read the lyrics below. One of my very favorite songs these days. 
It's the cry of my heart, the longing of my soul, the drive to my prayers, the call to my Savior. 
With much love,
~ Jean Marie ~ 

lyrics inspired by "Come, Lord, and Tarry Not" by Horatius Bonar (1846) 

"Come Lord, and tarry not; bring the long-looked-for day; 
Oh why these years of waiting here, these ages of delay?

Come, for Thy saints still wait; daily ascends their sigh:
The Spirit and the Bride say "Come": Dost Thou not hear our cry? 

(chorus) - Oh come and make all things new! Come and make all things new! 
Oh come and make all things new! Build up this ruined earth, come and make all things new.  
All things new .... 

Come for creation groans, impatient of Thy stay. 
Worn out with these long years of woe, these ages of delay. 

Come for love waxes cold, its steps are faint and slow.
Faith now is lost and unbelief, hope's lamp burns dim and low. 

Oh come and make all things new! Come and make all things new! 
Oh come and make all things new! Build up this ruined earth, come and make all things new.  
(repeat 2x's)

All things new .... All things new ... All things new."

~ Revelation 21: 1 - 7 ~ 

"Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away.
Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, 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 heaven saying "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 

And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." 

Then He who sat on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." 
And He said to me, "Write, for these words are true and faithful."

And He said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. 
I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son."
