New Earth

The Land Remains Beautiful

Cursed after the fall
The land remains beautiful
Restoration signs

A new Heaven and new Earth
The hand of the Creator

To Adam he said, ‘Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, “You must not eat from it,” ‘Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life.
– Genesis 3:17

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.
– Revelation 21:1

The Blessed Interior

O to return
To the blessed interior:
The unspoilt garden,
In a redeemed, renewed Earth;
To see the King of glory
All royal justice and grace
Robed in pure righteousness
To welcome me home

To bask in the Son-kissed warmth
Of His peaceful presence
To refresh in the cool shade
Of the eternal tree of Life;
To join the saints and angels
Bursting forth in choral voice:
Singing everlasting,
Praise upon praise
