Music: “God Himself”

In Revelation 21 we read:

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:1-4)

In the new heaven and the new earth, there’s going to be some major changes to say the least! There will be no more sorrow, pain, death, mourning, or tears. What a world is in store for all of those who belong to Christ Jesus! However, we sometimes miss the intimacy in this passage. It’s not just that tears will be no more. It’s more than that. Our Father will be the One to personally wipe away every tear from our eyes. What tenderness! What Love!

Listen to this beautifully written song by Matthew Smith entitled “God Himself” in which he focuses his attention on this phrase.

Here’s the full lyrics (video below):

In the day when silent sorrow
Seems to shake me to the core;
Then I hear the heav’nly comfort:
“You will weep no more.”

God Himself will dry your tears.
God Himself will soothe your fears.

In the day when earthly weakness
Weighs your weary spirit down;
All around you seems a burden,
All above you seems a frown…

God Himself will dry your tears.
God Himself will soothe your fears.

In the day when sin oppresses
And the battle rages strong;
When the victory seems doubtful,
Or triumphant seems the wrong…

God Himself will dry your tears.
God Himself will soothe your fears.
God Himself will dry your tears.
God Himself will soothe your fears.

Oh I hear the heav’nly comfort:
“You will weep no more.”
