Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Beautiful city built above

Representative Text

1. Beautiful city built above,
Beautiful kingdom full of love;
Beautiful home where all may spend
Beautiful days that ne'er shall end;
Beautiful throne with jewels bright,
Beautiful angels clothed in white;
Beautiful mansions all may share,
Beautiful beings shall dwell there.

2. Beautiful city of the blest,
Beautiful walls with jasper drest;
Beautiful gates of worth untold,
Beautiful streets of purest gold;
Beautiful throng by faith I see,
Beautiful robes for you and me;
Beautiful crowns that all may wear,
Beautiful palms that all may bear.

3. Beautiful songs of Christ the King,
Beautiful strains from glad harps ring;
Beautiful light in that fair dome,
Beautiful scenes in that sweet home;
Beautiful river gliding by,
Beautiful hills of glory nigh;
Beautiful all with rapture rife,
Beautiful home of light and life.
