162. No Night There

1 In the land of fadeless day
Lies the "city four-square,"
It shall never pass away,
And there is "no night there."

Chorus:
God shall "wipe away all tears;"
There's no death, no pain, nor fears;
And they count not time by years,
For there is "no night there."

2 All the gates of pearl are made,
In the "city four-square,"
All the streets with gold are laid,
And there is "no night there." [Chorus]

3 And the gates shall never close
To the "city four-square,"
There life's crystal river flows,
All the streets with gold are laid,
And there is "no night there." [Chorus]

4 There they need no sunshine bright,
In that "city four-square,"
For the Lamb is all the light,
And there is "no night there." [Chorus]
