As I was driving…

Serendipitous things can happen when the car radio is on and music is almost subliminal. I was arrested by the thoughts prompted by When the Lamb Becomes the Light, and checked it out on Google. I found something interesting; and I think you may enjoy it, too.

Here are the lyrics. After you have reviewed them, click on the video below and listen to the rendering of one man, Nathaniel Kramer. And enjoy the special effect when he and his other self join with him to sing a well-harmonized trio.

The source citation link below takes you to some other interesting renderings of hymns and spiritual songs.

When the Lamb Becomes the Light

The Spirit showed to John a wondrous vision.

From heaven’s highest realm, a holy city did descend
With its crystal river, gates of pearl, and great celestial chambers.
John saw it, but could scarcely comprehend
This place of perfect peace that’s everlasting
Where death is gone forever, and where no one will grow old.
And the sun is overshadowed by the Lamb in all His glory.
Oh, what a vision we too will behold!

When the Lamb becomes the Light,
And the faith that we’ve held onto becomes sight.
There’ll be no more weeping,
No more sorrow, no more night
When the lamb becomes the Light.

At times our eyes are filled with tears of sadness,
Yet we hold to the promise that these tears will pass away,
And though the world around us now is filled with pain and suffering,
We await that bright and glorious day.

When the Lamb becomes the Light,
And the faith that we’ve held onto becomes sight.
There’ll be no more weeping,
No more sorrow, no more night
When the lamb becomes the Light.

      Thanks for your thoughts here, Dave. It its focus, the book of Revelation is really primarily the revelation of Jesus Christ, not so? May it be that all such matters as this would point us to Him, the Head of the church, and stimulate us to give to Him the honor that is due His name!
