In Revelation chapter one

1
In Revelation chapter one
God gives a vision of the Son,
Of Him who was and is to come;
Oh, let us to this One now come.
2
In spirit hear His trumpet voice;
We must be turned to see His choice—
The seven lampstands golden fair;
The Son of Man is walking there.
3
The great high priestly robe He wears,
For every church He fully cares:
He trims the lamp, the oil supplies;
He makes them burn, flames in His eyes.
4
A golden girdle on His breast—
His work is done, and from His rest
He unto all the churches pours
Himself in love, the treasure store.
5
His head, His hair is white as wool—
The ancient One with youth is full.
His face is shining as the sun
To burn and lighten every one.
6
Oh, when this living One we see,
We'll fall as dead, we'll finished be.
But then the Lord His comfort gives—
He once was dead, but now He lives.
7
Let every church just love Him more
His riches then He will outpour.
All other loves now lay aside;
Let's take this Jesus, none beside.

This hymn is a rousing, uplifting view of the New Jerusalem. It can also be sung to the tune "The Green Berets".
