675. Jerusalem, My Happy Home

1 Jerusalem, my happy home,
when shall I come to thee?
When will my sorrows have an end?
Thy joys, when shall I see?

2 O happy harbor of the saints,
O sweet and pleasant soil!
In thee no sorrow may be found,
no grief, no care, no toil.

3 Thy saints are crowned with glory great;
they see God face to face;
they triumph still, they still rejoice:
most happy is their case.

4 Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
God grant that I may see
thine endless joy, and of the same
partaker ever be!
