In my dreams I have seen beyond
In my dreams I have seen what I am coming from
Visions of my eternity
Visions of a celestial holy city

Twelve gates of Jerusalem
Twelve angels surround the wall
Only one way leads inside the gates
Only one way prepared for us all

I have seen the New Jerusalem
Glorious, the New Jerusalem
Behold, the world of corruption has passed away
Out of the ashes below me I rise
Into the city of new life, the power, the way
Ascending into paradise

By the grace of the Holy One
I am free from this world of desolation
Free from greed, lust and selfishness
To nevermore be a slave to this wicked flesh

By the ultimate sacrifice
I'm alive, yet transcend this life
From this old world of death burning down
Now I walk through the ashes unto holy ground

I have seen the New Jerusalem
Glorious, the New Jerusalem
Behold, the world of corruption has passed away
Out of the ashes below me I rise
Into the city of new life, the power, the way
Ascending into paradise
(x2)
