974. The City of God

1 Bathed in unfallen sunlight,
Itself a sunborn gem,
Fair gleams the glorious city,
The new Jerusalem!
City fairest, splendor rarest,
Let me gaze on thee!
O city fairest, splendor rarest,
Home for all the free!

2 Calm in her queenly glory,
She sits all joy and light:
Pure in her bridal beauty,
Her raiment festal white!
Home of gladness, free from sadness,
Let me dwell in thee!
O home of gladness, free from sadness,
Mine eternally!

3 Shading her golden pavement,
The tree of life is seen,
Its fruit-rich branches waving,
Celestial evergreen.
Tree of wonder, let me under
Thee forever rest!
O tree of wonder, let me under
Thy rich boughs be blest!

4 Rich are the priceless jewels
That deck her mighty wall,
And from the throne of God-head
A wondrous radiance falls.
City fairest, splendor rarest,
Let me gaze on thee!
O city fairest, splendor rarest,
Home for all the free!
