Representative Text

1 Beautiful City of God,
Beautiful City of Light,
Where naught that defileth may enter,
Where none see the shadow of night.

Refrain:
Beautiful City of God,
Beautiful City of Praise,
Where the songs of the blest shall be ringing,
Through eternity’s endless days.

2 Beautiful City of God,
Beautiful City of gold,
Whose treasures are far beyond telling,
Whose glories are yet to unfold. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful City of God,
Beautiful City of rest,
Where the wanderer reaches a shelter,
The lamb finds the good Shepherd’s breast. [Refrain]
