Revelation 21

Deep in the highest heaven
cries echo from a city adorned with invisible jewels
a place prepared for unknown heroes
here walls of salvation contain secrets of eternity
(they know the moments when understanding
falls like rain around me.)
Open up your eyes and see the plan you were designed for.
you who are forgotten, dust between the stones
enter the gates that season our lips with grace
take no rest until you, Jerusalem are the pride of the earth
rocks surround the soil you prepared
guarding the weakness you hide,
now replaced by strength
a redemption of glory creeps over the horizon
unnoticed and majestic at once
You will descend - a promise fulfilled, complete.
at last you shine for all to see
drawn as a masterpiece into destiny
woven with hearts abandoned to Your praise.
