The Hope of Advent

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I 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 the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son.

Revelation 21:1-7

Creator God, a helpless babe
Has come into the world He made
Relinquished royal privilege
To come to us as God made flesh
Fully God, yet fully man
That each of us be born again
Born of a virgin, to David’s throne
A throne of straw in David’s home
Born as all the prophets said
Without sin or its deadly effects
To a world suffering under sin and death

Humble and lowly, he came to save
Giving life to all who the Father gave
With Gospel news, and Gospel grace
His righteousness to take our place
Our sins traded for his crown
Our death taken for his renown
That angels and men in chorus could sing
“Glory to the Risen King!”
And all things groaning to be restored
Would suffer under sin and death no more
A new Heaven and Earth, with Him as our Lord
Our Sun and Moon forevermore!
For He is the light that lights eternity
And he came to rescue – Let all creation sing!
