Longing

My friend, Carsten Almann Levisen, has written a beautiful song about longing. It’s in Danish, but here is an attempt at translating the words:

Longing, we’re longing, Jesus we’re longing to see you as King and God. Longing, we’re longing, Jesus we’re longing after the earth where peace and freedom live

Longing, we’re longing, Jesus we’re longing to see you as King and God. Longing, we’re longing, Jesus we’re longing after the earth where peace and freedom live – the new earth

When you transform the earth, and we will live together as settlers on the new earth. When you transform the earth, and we will live together as settlers on the new earth.

Longing, we’re longing, Jesus we’re longing to see you as King and God. Longing, we’re longing, Jesus we’re longing after the earth where peace and freedom live – the new earth

When you transform the earth, and we will live together as settlers on the new earth. When you transform the earth, and we will live together as settlers on the new earth

God, we’re longing, longing after you

“We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies” (Romans 8:22-23)

“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away”” (Revelation 21:1-4)

I can only conclude this blog entry the way John concludes the Book of Revelation: “Amen. Come, Lord Jesus

    Der er immervæk mange regnbuer … En lille smule svært at forholde sig til i en grumset, mudret verden.

    Hi Torben,

    Love this one on “Longing.” Is there a place I can hear it with the music?
