Isaiah 65:17–19 (Listen)

New Heavens and a New Earth


17   “For behold, I create new heavens
    and a new earth,
  and the former things shall not be remembered
    or come into mind.
18   But be glad and rejoice forever
    in that which I create;
  for behold, I create Jerusalem to be a joy,
    and her people to be a gladness.
19   I will rejoice in Jerusalem
    and be glad in my people;
  no more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping
    and the cry of distress.

(ESV)

Hymn: TLH 613, st. 1,4: Jerusalem, the Golden

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. Jerusalem the golden, 
With milk and honey blest, 
Beneath thy contemplation 
Sink heart and voice opprest. 
I know not, oh, I know not, 
What joys await us there, 
What radiancy of glory, 
What bliss beyond compare. 

4. O sweet and blessed country, 
The home of God’s elect! 
O sweet and blessed country 
That eager hearts expect! 
Jesus, in mercy bring us 
To that dear land of rest, 
Who art, with God the Father 
And Spirit, ever blest.
