"All Things New," composed by Elaine Hagenberg with lyrics by Frances Havergal.

Setting the words of Frances Havergal's poem to music, "All Things New" disarms our current hardships with a pure vision of hope in our Savior Jesus Christ.

Performed by the Shafer family, who are United Church of God members from Michigan, in anticipation of Jesus's return and reign on Earth.


Light after darkness,

gain after loss, 

Strength after weakness, 

crown after cross; 

Sweet after bitter, 

hope after fears,

Home after wandering, 

praise after tears.


Alpha and Omega, 

beginning and the end, 

He is making all things new.

Springs of living water

shall wash away each tear,

He is making all things new.

Sight after mystery,

sun after rain,

Joy after sorrow,

peace after pain;

Near after distant,

gleam after gloom,

Love after loneliness,

life after tomb.
