Verse 1:
Lo! what a glorious sight
Appears to our believing eyes
The earth and sea are passed away
And the old rolling skies
From the third heaven, where God resides
That holy, happy place
The new Jerusalem comes down
Adorned with shining grace

How long, How long
How long will you delay
Fly swifter round, ye wheels of time
And bring the welcome day

Verse 2:
The God of glory down to men
Removes His blest abode
Men, the objects of His grace
And he the loving God
His own hand will wipe the tears
From every weeping eye
And pains, and groans, and griefs, and fears
And death itself, shall die


from Advent No. 2, released December 7, 2014
(Isaac Watts, Jon Lowder)
