1. Lo! what glorious sight appears,
To our believing eyes;
The earth and seas are passing away,
And the old rolling skies.
2. From the third heaven, where God resides,
That holy, happy place!
The new Jerusalem comes down,
Adorned with shining grace.
3. The God of glory down to men
Removes his blest above;
His saints the objects of his grace,
And he their faithful God.
4. His own soft hand shall wipe the tears
From every weeping eye;
And pains, and groans, and griefs, and fears,
And death itself shall die.
