New Again

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. And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” – Revelation 21:4-5

This Sunday, we will be introducing a new song to our gathering, New Again by Brooks Ritter and Mike Cosper, featured on the album New Again by Sojourn Music. New Again acknowledges that we live in a dark world, and gives voice to the pain and sorrow that many of us experience in life, while at the same time, leading us back to the hope we have in Christ. We catch a glimpse of this hope in Revelation 21:4-5, as the new heavenly city descends on a new earth, the one who sits on the throne says “Behold, I am making all things new!” Something that requires a new birth, a new life, and a new creation. All of which culminates in God’s “new” work in Jesus Christ. Here are the lyrics:

When death shows his face and bares his teeth
May we with faith run to Calvary
Not one shed tear, no strand of grief
Falls to the ground and goes unseen

Death is defeated, and Jesus reigns
Tell the world there is hope in his name
He pushed back the darkness, He conquered our sin
And Christ will make all things new again
And Christ will make all things new again, new again

We’re blinded by trials, our lives marked with pain
Shadows surround us, but there is hope today
When sorrows run deep and the night is long
May we find peace in the Savior’s song

The sun it is dawning it pierces the night
It cuts through the shadow with redemption’s light
The fallen will rise, the weak will be strong
As death turns to life in our savior’s arms

You can listen to New Again by watching the video below, and you can purchase and download the full song by clicking here. Our hope and prayer is that this song would be a call to celebrate and remember Jesus’ power and promise to be faithful, even in the midst of difficult circumstances.
