Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

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!
