O Holy City, Seen of John

Author: Walter Russell Bowie Meter: Appears in 75 hymnals Scripture: Revelation 21 Lyrics: 1 O holy city, seen of John, Where Christ, the Lamb, does reign, Within whose foursquare walls shall come No night, nor need, nor pain, And where the tears are wiped from eyes That shall not weep again. 2 O shame to us who rest content While lust and greed for gain In street and shop and tenement Wring gold from human pain, And bitter lips in blind despair Cry “Christ has died in vain!” 3 Give us, O God, the strength to build The city that hath stood Too long a dream, whose laws are love, Whose ways are servanthood, And where the sun that shines becomes God’s grace for human good. 4 Already in the mind of God That city rises fair. Lo, how its splendor challenges The souls that greatly dare, And bids us seize the whole of life And build its glory there. Used With Tune: MORNING SONG

Hymn 21

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: Appears in 261 hymnals Scripture: Revelation 21:1-4 First Line: Lo! what a glorious sight appears Lyrics: Lo! what a glorious sight appears To our believing eyes! The earth and sea are passed away, And the old rolling skies. From the third heav'n, where God resides, That holy, happy place, The new Jerusalem comes down, Adorned with shining grace. Attending angels shout for joy, And the bright armies sing- "Mortals, behold the sacred seat Of your descending King. "The God of glory down to men Removes his blest abode; Men, the dear objects of his grace, And he the loving God. "His own soft hand shall wipe the tears From every weeping eye, And pains, and groans, and griefs, and fears, And death itself, shall die." How long, dear Savior! O how long Shall this bright hour delay? Fly swifter round, ye wheels of time, And bring the welcome day.

Just and holy is thy name, I am all unrighteousness; false and full of sin I am, thou art full of truth and grace. 4 Plenteous grace with thee is found, grace to cover all my sin; let the healing streams abound, make and keep me pure within: thou of life the fountain art, freely let me take of thee, spring thou up within my heart, rise to all eternity.
