And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. – Revelation 21:4 (AV)
And God will wipe away all tears from our eyes,
Will surely wipe away all tears from our eyes.
Inclined no way but One, we lose all dread;
Unthreatened, we disarm all spears from our eyes.
Righteousness, peace, and joy are over all things spread!
There vanish memories of fears from our eyes.
Is this perfection not just as the prophets said?
The cloud of doubting disappears from our eyes.
All separation overcome, all self-will dead,
Time’s function filled, there fall all years from our eyes.
Those new names, true names written in the old ones’ stead
Dissolve in glory with the tears from our eyes.
