Beautiful places refresh the soul,
Helping to make people fresh and whole.
They don't provide us eternal peace,
But they can give us a brief release
From all the ugliness life can bring.
Yes, they can help us rejoice and sing.
Thank God for places designed with grace;
Then still look forward to God's own place.
The one who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God. Never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name.
