Both the text and tune of this song were written by the late Sander Vanderploeg, long time teacher at William of Orange Christian School in Cloverdale, British Columbia. The text closely follows the words of Revelation 21:1-5. The refrain very strongly emphasizes the truth of God's word and God's faithfulness to His promises.

The tune is simple consisting of quarter and half notes. The only "tricky" parts are the three spots where one syllable is held over two half notes (four beats). The range of notes is gentle on the singer (G – D).

We sang this one last week in Cloverdale. I was worried that it would fall flat, but it actually went over quite well. This may have something to do with the fact that a good number of people in our congregation were part of the choir that put together the 28 Hymns recording.
