778. The City of Light

1 There’s a city of light ’mid the stars, we are told,
Where they know not a sorrow or care;
And the gates are of pearl, and the streets are of gold,
And the building exceedingly fair.

Refrain:
Let us pray for each other, nor faint by the way,
In this sad world of sorrow and care,
For that home is so bright, and is almost in sight,
And I trust in my heart you’ll go there.

2 Brother dear, never fear, we shall triumph at last,
If we trust in the word He has giv’n;
When our trials and toils, and our weepings are past,
We shall meet in that home up in heav’n. [Refrain]

3 Sister dear, never fear, for the Savior is near,
With His hand He will lead you along;
And the way that is dark Christ will graciously clear,
And your mourning shall turn to a song. [Refrain]

4 Let us walk in the light of the gospel divine;
Let us ever keep near to the cross;
Let us love, watch, and pray, in our pilgrimage here;
Let us count all things else but as loss. [Refrain]
