The New Garden

The River

Revelation 22:1-5
New Living Translation (NLT)

22 Then the angel showed me a river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations. 3 No longer will there be a curse upon anything. For the throne of God and of the Lamb will be there, and his servants will worship him. 4 And they will see his face, and his name will be written on their foreheads. 5 And there will be no night there—no need for lamps or sun—for the Lord God will shine on them. And they will reign forever and ever.


The River

There is a river sweet and fair,
That gently flows without a care,
No need for sun or even moon,
The Light of God shines bright as noon,

The Tree of Life on each bank stands,
Its leaves for the healing of the lands,
Its fruits each month are sheer delight,
His name on every forehead in plain sight,

Its waters provide for life everlasting,
He knows all we need without ever asking,
The curse has ended to the delight of all,
The air is full of worship from the big and the small,

So leave all of your belongings,
All of your stuff and your things,
And come live in God’s garden,
Where we’re all free once again.

Father,

How blessed we are because one day, as sure as sure can be, your people will live on that river! Hallelujah!
