God sees our world as one day it will be,
an earth new-made, from sin and sorrow free,
as when creation first before him stood
and he who formed us saw that it was good.
God sees his church as one day it will be,
glorious in truth and love and unity,
washed from its stains by water and the word,
the bride of Christ, adorned to meet her Lord.
God sees us all as one day we shall be:
stir up, O Lord, your Spirit's work in me;
until at last, by God's redeeming grace,
I see my Savior's glory, face to face.
