1 Beautiful Zion built above,
Beautiful city that I love;
Beautiful gates of pearly white!
Beautiful temple, God its light!
There shall I join the chorus sweet,
Worshiping at the Savior’s feet;
There shall my eyes their beauty behold,
Join in the song with harps of pure gold.
2 Beautiful trees forever there,
Beautiful fruits they always bear,
Beautiful river gliding by,
Beautiful fountain never dry! [Refrain]
3 Beautiful light without the sun,
Beautiful day revolving on;
Beautiful worlds on worlds untold
Beautiful streets of shining gold! [Refrain]
4 Beautiful heav’n where all is light,
Beautiful angels clothed in white;
Beautiful songs that never tire,
Beautiful harps thro’ all the choir! [Refrain]
