44. Beautiful Zion

1 Beautiful Zion built above,
Beautiful city that I love,
Beautiful gates of pearly white,
Beautiful temple, God its light.

He who was slain on Calvary
Opened those pearly gates to me,
Opened those pearly gates to me.

2 Beautiful city filled with light,
Beautiful angels clothed in white,
Beautiful strains that never tire,
Beautiful harps thro’ all the choir. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful crowns on every brow,
Beautiful palms the conq’rors show,
Beautiful robes the ransomed wear,
Beautiful all who enter there. [Refrain]

4 Beautiful throne of Christ our King,
Beautiful songs the angels sing,
Beautiful rest, all wand’rings cease,
Beautiful home of perfect peace. [Refrain]
