84. The Streets of Gold

1 The cares of my life are many,
The griefs of my heart untold,
But God holds before me ever
My home by the streets of gold.

Refrain:
O fairest vision to behold,
That city with its streets of gold,
It cheers and helps me in my toiling—
That vision of the streets of gold.

2 The foes of my heart I conquer,
For God makes me strong and bold;
Revealing, each day, more clearly,
Yon city with streets of gold. [Refrain]

3 Earth’s beauty, at best, is fading,
Earth’s treasures I cannot hold;
Praise God, O my soul, He gives me
A home by the streets of gold. [Refrain]
