Hymn/Song Information

Beyond our sight a city foursquare




Beyond our sight
a city four-square lieth,
Above the clouds,
the fogs and mists of earth;
And none but souls
that Jesus purifieth
Can see its walls,
or hear its holy mirth.

Beyond our sight,
beyond our night,
Beyond this world’s sad story;
That city bright,
it stands in light,
The home of all the holy.



Secure and strong,
this heavenly city builded
By Christ the Lamb
for all the blood-washed throng,
Gleams fair and bright,
with golden glory gilded,
For ever thrilling
with triumphant song.

Beyond our sight,
beyond our night,
Beyond this world’s sad story;
That city bright,
it stands in light,
The home of all the holy.



There, on the throne,
the Lamb once slain is seated,
The Shepherd’s joy
upon His holy face;
While countless hosts,
their warfare all completed,
In circling bands,
lift ceaseless songs of praise.

Beyond our sight,
beyond our night,
Beyond this world’s sad story;
That city bright,
it stands in light,
The home of all the holy.



O sorrowing souls, beneath
earth’s burdens bending,
Lift up your eyes
to yonder city fair;
And through your tears
let praise be still ascending
For rest, and home,
and loved ones waiting there.

Beyond our sight,
beyond our night,
Beyond this world’s sad story;
That city bright,
it stands in light,
The home of all the holy.
