For 19 May 2019, Fifth Sunday of Easter, based on Revelation 21:1â€“5a
Â Â Then I, John, saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,
â€œSee, the home of God is among mortals.
He will dwell with them as their God;
they will be his peoples,
and God himself will be with them;
he will wipe every tear from their eyes.
Death will be no more;
mourning and crying and pain will be no more,
for the first things have passed away.â€
Â And the one who was seated on the throne said, â€œSee, I am making all things new.â€ Also he said, â€œWrite this, for these words are trustworthy and true.â€
