Representative Text

1 Beautiful city, blessed and fair,
Beautiful country, treasures most rare,
Beautiful land, who thy glories can tell—
With the redeem’d ones we there shall dwell.

Beautiful city, beautiful city,
Fashioned by Jesus the builder divine;
Beautiful city, beautiful city,
O when shall thy pleasures be mine.

2 Beautiful city, lovely thy light,
Beautiful city—never ‘tis night,
Beautiful mansion prepared there for me;
O how I long thy rich beauties to see. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful home when shall we be there,
Beautiful land, thy happiness share,
Beautiful city we long for the rest,
There with the Saviour be happy and blest. [Refrain]
