Arrive


"I've always been fascinated with Revelation 21. I believe it's one of the most beautiful passages within the entire Biblical text, but it also seems to be one of the most misinterpreted. 

I was raised the oldest son of a Pentecostal Preacher. As much as I love my roots, growing up within a fundamental Pentecostal tradition came along with a few quirks (as you can imagine); especially when it came time to talk about the "end times" as they called it. Like ghost stories around a camp fire, My childhood and adolescent years were filled with stories of being "left behind." Now, I'm not claiming to have all the answers, but later in life when I actually began studying the Revelation 21 text I saw a much different picture. I saw a picture of restoration rather than utter destruction; renewal rather than absolute abandonment. 

In Revelation 21, I see the intersection of a new heaven and a new earth; a place where every wrong is made right and all things are made beautiful again. I believe this is the heart of our God - to heal, restore, and renew. It's really good news! I find myself daydreaming a lot lately about what that place will look like, and as a result I've been writing a lot of songs about it. Arrive is one of those songs that seeks to testify to that coming day." (Micah Massey)

VERSE 1
Let justice flow like a waterfall
Justice flow like a waterfall
Let healing come like a rushing wind
Healing come like a rushing wind
And sweep our land

PRE CHORUS
I hear singing in the cemeteries
You are breathing new life into creation

CHORUS 1
The coming king will soon arrive
His enemies will run and hide
The coming king will soon arrive
He’ll wipe away the tears from our eyes

VERSE 2
Orphans dance, hear the widow sing
Chains will break, let the slave go free
Sons and daughters prophesy
Old men dream, every wrong made right
Every wrong made right

CHORUS 2
He’ll wipe away the tears from our eyes
Wipe away the tears from our eyes
Wipe away the tears from our eyes
He’ll wipe away the tears from eyes
