Behold, Behold by Caroline Cobb

Behold, Behold is the final track on her album A Home & A Hunger.
It speaks of experiencing the culmination and fulfillment of God’s redemption.

The lyrics:
Verse 1:
I see a city coming down
Like a bride in whitest gown,
Purely dressed
I see the pilgrims coming home
All creation finds shalom;
The promised rest
Pre-Chorus:
The Lamb of God will be her light
The sun will have no need to shine
Chorus 1:
Behold, behold
God makes His home with us!
He’ll take his throne, forever glorious!
The curse will be undone!
O come lord, Jesus come
Verse 2:
The Lord will banish every sin
All that’s broken He will mend;
And make new
And we will see Him face to face
As He wipes our tears away;
Death is through
Pre-Chorus 2:
And all the ransomed and redeemed
From every tongue and tribe will sing
Chorus 1
Bridge:
At last the darkness
Will surrender to the light
But we unveiled in glory will forever shine
At last the powers of hell
Will drown in lakes of fire
But we will freely drink
The crystal streams of life
Come thirsty taste and see
Come hungry to the feast
Come weary find your peace
The Bride and Spirit sing
Come! Come!
Chorus 2:
Behold, behold God makes His home with us
He’ll take his throne, forever glorious!
Behold, behold God makes His home with us
He’ll take his throne, forever glorious!
The curse will be undone
Oh come, Lord Jesus, come
