Bible Reference… Revelation 21,22
I don’t have the answers to the questions that this life so often throws at me.
At times this world feels like a prison to an anxious soul that’s waiting just to be set free.
But, I will hold to my hope; a promise made long ago:
“If you will trust in Me, I’ll take you to a land where you’ll see…”
“Nobody will die anymore. No one will hurt like before.
Nobody will say good-bye. No tears will fill our eyes.
No one will do without; no curse, no fear and doubt.
Won’t you take My hand, go with Me to the Promised Land.”
From the four winds of the earth, the multitudes will gather In the Promised Land.
From every race and every generation, unified, we will rise up hand in hand.
Together we’ll stand as one; so thankful we’ve overcome.
The dawning of a brand new day, in unison, we’ll lift our praise. (CHORUS)
