This song, All Things New, is a song that I composed about a year ago. One week, a Sunday Mass reading included part of the book of Revelation, chapter 21 and the Lord’s promise to make all things new resonated with me and stayed in my mind. At about the same time I had become interested in Motown artists and music and the combination of the two ideas resulted in my song, All Things New, to which I tried to give a bit of a Motown vibe. I hope you like it!

The New Heaven and the New Earth
Revelation Chapter 21
1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband; 3 and I heard a great voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them; 4 he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away.”
5 And he who sat upon the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” Also he said, “Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.” 6 And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give water without price from the fountain of the water of life. 7 He who conquers shall have this heritage, and I will be his God and he shall be my son.
