Listen to the words of Jesus:
"I am making all things new!"
Far beyond all speculation
we shall find his promise true
when he brings us home at last,
death and pain and sorrow past.

Let us come into God's presence
by a new and living way:
there the risen Son is seated
at his Father's side today.
Boldly let us enter in,
purified from all our sin.

Now we are his new creation -
rescued, pardoned and restored -
let us celebrate our freedom,
representing Christ our Lord
who defeated sin and strife,
crushing death to bring us life.

Daily as we travel onwards
let us trust the Lord to guide,
sure that, through his tender mercy,
all we need will be supplied.
May his Spirit give us light
even through the darkest night.

Let us sing new songs of worship
even through uncertain days,
may the peace and love of Jesus
still our hearts and stir our praise:
all he promised he will do:
earth and heaven shall be new!
