And once again the scene was chang’d,New earth there seem’d to be,I saw the Holy CityBeside the tideless sea;The light of God was on its streets,The Gates were open wide,And all who would might enter,And no one was denied.No need of moon or stars by night,Or sun to shine by day,It was the new Jerusalem,That would not pass away.fred weatherly
