There is a lot of beauty in our universe, but even with as much beauty as we see, there is something still more beautiful. And when it’s hard to see the beauty down here is often when we are reminded even more of the beauty waiting for us on the other side. God has promised those who believe in Him that there is a future world unlike anything we could imagine on this earth. A “new heaven and a new earth” where “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). No wonder then, that we all find in ourselves a yearning for something more than what we can see right now. As C.S. Lewis put it, “the most probable explanation [for that desire] is that I was made for another world.”
This song paints a beautiful picture of that longing, and the hope that we have to keep going until that day when all things are made new!
