Description: This moderate difficulty piece was written to be performable by a small group. The range of the baritone part should be manageable for either tenors or basses. The men's line does divide a bit, but as the piano and other parts generally cover those splits, they can be done away with to accommodate balance issues or in the case of a single male singer. The ranges of the soprano and alto parts are also moderate enough that an alto 1 could sing soprano or a soprano 2 could sing alto.

Revelation 21

1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
