Your moon still shines on earth's tired face;
And stars are still in their special place;
The season come, the season go
To bless us and to help us know
You still are there, Your heart full-blown;
Your arms open wide to carry us home!
As the world turns , I listen and wait ~
For soon to come, miraculous fate ~
To be alive in such a day!
To watch the skies ~ He's on His way!
All will be new of Heaven and earth,
All will be well with that "new birth".
And men shall live at peace with God
Blessed with His presence, not to laud
Or brag, but only in comfort - ease,
To dwell with God and live to please
A Holy and magnificient One
Who loved and sacrified His Son!
