UNTIL THAT DAY COMES
Written and Performed Live May 2, 2014 at People & Songs Writers Retreat (hosted by Jennie Lee Riddle) Inspired by Revelation 21 and 22 and Isaiah 61 Until That Day Comes is a declaration for the Bride of Christ. As we draw strength from the promise that one day death, mourning, and weeping will cease; that God will make all things right , we embrace our calling to go and share this great hope with all that we can across the earth and make ready the path of the Lord.... Until That Day Comes!
Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
3 No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. 4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 5 There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.
