New Jerusalem

Two angels stood, one past, the other yet to be.
With cherubim and flaming sword
flashing forth and back behind us, guarding
the now-forbidden garden gate of Eden, access
because of sin, lost were the Tree of Life and
  walking with God.
But forward facing, looking far ahead
we see a hope surpassing all understanding,
an angel shows us a new river, a new light, a new
and the Tree of Life beckons us again to eat of its
  forever fruit.
Make way for New Jerusalem, the seventh trumpet blasts!
When all ages of man have come and gone, 
when the first heaven and first earth finally pass,
when God's own hand lowers it down from His
the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, will be our
  heavenly home.
A place of unimagined promise and blessing,
a place for healing of all nations, no more curse,
water of life, streets of gold, and light for all from
ready for the feast, the Tree of Life stands astride the
And the Spirit of God will say, "Come! Welcome
to the wedding of the bride and the Lamb."
