IN THE CITY




Do you seek the golden city,
By the ransomed ones possessed,
Where no grief with rapture mingles,
And no pain mars perfect rest?
There beside the crystal river,
Will your soul rejoice forever,
In the city of the blest?

Will you meet us in that city,
Waving victory's fadeless palm?
Will you meet us wearing life's bright diadem?
Will you join the hallelujahs
Of the grand triumphal psalm
In the city of the New Jerusalem?


Are you laying up the riches
Which forevermore endure?
Do you hold to heaven a title
Based upon the covenant sure?
Only there are lasting pleasures,
Only there unfading treasures,
In the city of the pure,

Will you meet us in that city,
Waving victory's fadeless palm?
Will you meet us wearing life's bright diadem?
Will you join the hallelujahs
Of the grand triumphal psalm
In the city of the New Jerusalem?


Do you long for joyous meetings
In the blessed by and by,
With the angel friends abiding
Where no tear-drop dims the eye?
Where farewells are never spoken,
And fond ties no more are broken.
In the city built on high?

Will you meet us in that city,
Waving victory's fadeless palm?
Will you meet us wearing life's bright diadem?
Will you join the hallelujahs
Of the grand triumphal psalm
In the city of the New Jerusalem?


Oh, while time is swiftly passing
For eternity prepare,
Seek a home within that city
"Midst the "many mansions" there;
Then beyond the pearly portal
You shall feast on joys immortal,
In God's city, wondrous fair.

Will you meet us in that city,
Waving victory's fadeless palm?
Will you meet us wearing life's bright diadem?
Will you join the hallelujahs
Of the grand triumphal psalm
In the city of the New Jerusalem?
