1 Christ has prepared for us a place
of joy as yet unseen, unheard,
of glory promised by his grace
to all who take him at his word:

2 A place where no disease is found,
no sin, no sickness, no despair;
where light and life and love abound,
for Love himself is dwelling there:

3 A place where through eternity
the sounds of praise bring sweet delight;
where every voice in harmony
combines in worship day and night:

4 A place where splendour meets the eye
a flowing river, fruitful trees,
the holy city towering high,
and yet more glorious sights than these:

5 A place where we shall see at last
the Lamb of God upon his throne;
his wounds are healed, his pain is past,
his people free, his victory won!

6 Lord, stir our hope, and give us grace
that day when all things are made new
to find the wonder of that place,
to see and know and worship you.
