Another strong congregational song written by Tim in country rock style for his church's celebration of the Jewish "Feast of the Tabernacles"
(see also “The Coming Of The Light”). This one powerfully links 1 Corinthians 9 v24 with several central themes of Revelation.

Lyrics (by Tim Barber)

And I saw the holy city
coming down out of heaven like a bride.
She has made herself ready,
she is clothed in fine linen, pure and white.
The light in her eyes
is the light of the Lord, her King;
Heaven's harmony as the bride
and bridegroom sing.

There is a feast that's long been planned,
it's the wedding of the Lamb,
God and man in sweet communion!
So keep on running for the prize,
keep the Son's light in your eyes,
store your treasures up in heaven
for that day.
The prize is worth it all,
the prize is worth it all!

There will be a celebration,
laughter, shouts of jubilation on that day;
when the ones who've overcome
receive their crowns, and all their tears are wiped away.
The trials of this life
are not worthy to be compared
with the glorious things
the Father has prepared!

Tim can be contacted at He's written many excellent songs,
all of which are covered by the Christian Copyright Licensing International licence for churches.

This song (and others equally good) are on his privately-produced cassette,
“Let Your Kingdom Come (Songs for the Feast of Tabernacles)” - well worth a listen.
