New Jerusalem

If words could describe
The longing in my heart
For the place prepared for me
When I think of Heaven’s glory
Awaiting the redeemed
All within me rises up
At the thought of what will be

How I long for the new Jerusalem
Just to see my Savior’s face
All my heart is in Jerusalem
My home my resting place

I’ve heard that the streets are paved with gold
And the light there never fades
I’ve heard of treasures to behold
That words could not explain
And the praise of the saints like an ocean
Holy is the Lamb that was slain

No more crying no more pain
Every tear will be wiped away
All suffering on earth will cease
Forevermore at peace
Jerusalem Jerusalem

He’s Been Faithful

In my moments of fear, through every pain, every tear,
There’s a God who’s been faithful to me
When my strength was all gone, when my heart had no song
Still in love He’s proved faithful to me
 
Every word He’s promised is true;
What I thought was impossible
I’ve seen my God do.
 
He’s been faithful, faithful to me
Looking back His love and mercy I see.
Though in my heart I have questioned
Even failed to believe,
Yet, He’s been faithful, faithful to me
 
When my heart looked away, the many times I could not pray
still my God, He was faithful to me.
The days I’ve spent so selfishly, reaching out for what pleased me
Even then God was faithful to me
 
And every time I come back to Him,
He is  waiting with His open arms
And I know once again.
 
He’s been faithful, faithful to me
Looking back His love and mercy I see.
Though in my heart I have questioned
Even failed to believe,
Yet, He’s been faithful, faithful to me
 
-Carol Cymbala, 1989
