Oh, Gift of Life,
How beautiful in purity
How lovely in Majesty
Eternal Wisdom radiant in the blazing eyes;
Yes, Savior, in power and greatest authority
In most tender, gentle goodness
Kindness in purest Spirit flow from Heaven’s Throne
River of the water of life
Crystal clear waters flow down the great street of New Jerusalem.
Much like the branches from the royal Tree of Life
That spread far and wide
Bearing the richest fruit in abundance
Continually renewed month by month
Day by day without end.
How wonderful to reach out and touch this splendor
Water as liquid jewels pour forth through hands and fingers
And the fruit that hangs heavy,
The taste of the exquisite delicacy
Beauty of all life, all Creation,
Eternal life freely given!
Because the nations had drunk their fill of evil
Emptying their cups of wickedness to the last drop
Choking it down greedily
Till their bellies burst,
Justice from the King of Glory followed in righteousness
And His Earth was swept clean
Every body of water purely filtered
The sea of all nations purified
All air around and above like the fragrance and aroma of Heaven;
Only the eternal beauty
Only the work of His hands
Truly forever remains.
