Celestial City bright;
Precious jewel upon the brow
Of the Lover who sings
The universe into being.

Shining City;
Burning brilliance of a billion stars
Gilded capital
Diamond light

Oh, precious feet upon your streets
Each footfall pressing down
Once ugly scars
As a lover’s kiss.

Each caress leaving in its place
The echo of completed work
Reality reformed by the central deformity
Of wounded God.

Of wounded ME!
Of broken, ugly ME!
United with broken God,
And formed anew.

Come New Jerusalem!
Come Reign of the King!
Come King!
Come Lord Jesus!
