To Know Perfection
I saw such beauty heavenward
While worshipping my Lord in prayer,
I looked beyond the sky to see
All my Lord has said is there.
Come I will show you the Bride
The angel said to John,
The beautiful wife of the lamb
For you to gaze upon.
A mansion in the heavens
God's been at work
To fit Him perfectly.
How can I imagine the glowing beauty,
All the brilliant shine.
Of the dazzling jasper walls
Where the bride will richly dine.
The gates formed of overlapping pearl,
The streets transparent gold,
Foundations of magnificent layers
Twelve jewels will unfold.
The first layer, burning of Jasper red,
Sapphire gleaming the richest blue.
Chalcedony quartz shedding varied tone,
Emerald emanating a deep green hue.
orange, yellow, white,
and olive green chrysolite.
Beryl diffusing a soft pale green,
with blue and yellow bright,
Then the translucent blue topaz,
what a wondrous sight.
Chrysoprase glimmering with golden green,
Jacinth radiating an autumn glow
Purple amethyst royal in brilliance,
Beautiful wonders of God to show.
I see The Holy One seated on the rainbow throne,
Saying "I'm making all things new
IT IS DONE, I AM THE BEGINNING AND THE END,
My Word is trustworthy, forever true.
To him who is thirsty,
Come to drink of Me
To him who overcomes
I will be a Father eternally."
Those found in the Lamb's book of life
Are the pure, the washed, the blessed.
They will drink of the water of life,
Will eat of the tree of life,
Live forever in this promised rest,
And know all of God's perfect best.
I found no temple worship there
The Lord's beauty was all to see,
His glory the only light
"HE" illuminating all eternity.
I looked for tears
But there was none,
I looked for death,
But it was stolen by The Son.
I looked for pain,
For it's mournful
But I found
will ever die.
Soft Whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems

Now the dwelling of God is with men, and He will live with them.
they will be His people and God Himself will be with them and be their God.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes,
There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain,
for the old order of things has passed away.
He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making all things new.....
It is done. I am the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End.
To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life.
