In this place I have been made new;
I have been gifted jewels beyond price.
In this place greater dreams are given.
I am made everlasting.
In this place I am light,
In this place, in Your sight
I am made everlasting.
In Your love, starting and ending;
I will be carried softly to heaven.
In Your love I am given beauty.
I am made everlasting.
You give the strength for me to hold,
You are the hope that shines like gold.
In this place I am new.
In this place I am true.
I will fly with angels to this place
And be made everlasting.
