New Land - Eden's Bridge

On a hillside in the warm sun
Granite shining like ice
And the water sparkling, rushing
Through the earth black as night
Where the skylark sings above me
And the sheep graze at ease
In the silence, this new land
Summons each, all, and me

I had not seen, I could not know
What this new land would be
I had heard a piece of Heaven
Was waiting for me
From the barren to the verdant
From the crag to the dale
Once I've stepped out in faith
Then theres no turning away

I'll fly, fly, headlong and free
Fly, fly, headlong and free
Why grieve for the pains that have been?
For the new land is calling to me
For the new land is calling to me

Every autumn has its winter
Every winter its spring
Ages pass and every dying
Means a new life begins
In the passing from the old land
There is sorrow and fear
But the night at its darkest
Means the dawning is near

"Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, 'Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.'" --- Revelation 21 (the beginning)
