        Through the gates
        of pearl and jasper
        To the city paved with gold,
        When the ransomed host shall enter,
        And their gracious Lord behold.
        When they meet in blissful triumph
        By the tree of life so fair
        Shall we join the noble army,
        And receive a welcome there?

        By the grace of God we’ll meet
        In the city’s golden street
        Shouting, glory! hallelujah!
        At the dear Redeemer’s feet.



        When the harvest work is ended,
        And the summer days are past,
        When the reapers go rejoicing
        To their bright reward at last;
        When the white robed
        angel leads them
        To the gates of joy so fair,
        Shall we join their happy number?
        Will they bid us welcome there?

        By the grace of God we’ll meet
        In the city’s golden street
        Shouting, glory! hallelujah!
        At the dear Redeemer’s feet.



        Let us follow on with firmness,
        Keeping ever in the way
        Where our blessèd Lord
        has taught us,
        To be faithful, watch and pray;
        Then, in garments pure and spotless,
        By the tree of life so fair,
        We shall sing through endless ages
        With the countless millions there.

        By the grace of God we’ll meet
        In the city’s golden street
        Shouting, glory! hallelujah!
        At the dear Redeemer’s feet.
