1 Beautiful city, the home of the blest,
Beautiful mansions where weary shall rest,
Beautiful river of life, never old,
Beautiful streets of the purest of gold.

O it is beautiful! “eye hath not seen,”
Neither hath ear heard the heavenly theme;
O it is beautiful! “eye hath not seen,”
Thrilling my soul with the heavenly theme.

2 Beautiful angels around the white throne,
Beautiful children forever our own,
Beautiful, sainted, enrobed in pure white,
Beautiful Saviour, refulgent with light. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful service of worship in song,
Beautiful family—perfectly one,
Beautiful harmony—living in love,
Beautiful scenes that await us above. [Refrain]

4 Beautiful greeting where friend meeteth friend,
Beautiful meeting that never shall end,
Beautiful day, with no shadow of night,
Beautiful vision, eternally bright. [Refrain]
