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.
