FANTASTIC. This is such a lovely song and it perfectly expresses our Advent longing and groaning for the Lord’s coming to restore all things and destroy the curse of sin.
To listen / download the song: Red Mountain Music: All Things New
May our love not wax cold, but may the Lord help us remain alert and watchful in eager expectation of His return.
Another good song from Red Mountain Music for Advent: How Sweet to Wait
UPDATE: with a little bit more time online this morning, I was able to find the original hymn, Come Lord and Tarry Not by Horatius Bonar which inspired Red Mountain’s version of “All Things New.”
Come Lord, and tarry not;
Bring the long-looked-for day;
O why these years of waiting here,
These ages of delay?
Come, for Thy saints still wait;
Daily ascends their sigh:
The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come”:
Dost Thou not hear the cry?
Come, for creation groans,
Impatient of Thy stay,
Worn out with these long years of ill,
These ages of delay.
Come, and make all things new;
Build up this ruined earth;
Restore our faded Paradise,
Creation’s second birth.
Come, and bring Thy reign
Of everlasting peace;
Come, take the kingdom to Thyself,
Great King of Righteousness.
