A world without night! A heaven without a sun!

(
John MacDuff, "The Faithful Promiser")

"And the city has no need of sun or moon for the glory of God illuminates the city, and the Lamb is its light!" Revelation 21:23


"There shall be no night there!" Revelation 21:25

My soul! is it night with you here? Are you wearied with these midnight tossings on life's tumultuous sea? Be still! The day is breaking! Soon shall your Lord appear! That glorious appearing shall disperse every cloud, and usher in an eternal noontide which knows no twilight. "The Lord will be your everlasting light and your God will be your glory! Your days of sorrow will come to an end!" Everlasting light! Wondrous secret of a nightless world the glories of a present God!

Strange realities! A world without night! A heaven without a sun! And, greater wonder still, yourself in this world a joyful citizen of this nightless, sinless, sorrowless, tearless Heaven basking underneath the Fountain of uncreated light! No exhaustion of glorified body and spirit to require repose; no lassitude or weariness to suspend the ever-deepening song, "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!"
