Beautiful City of Zion

Representative Text

1 City of Zion! wond’rous and fair,
Shining in splendor thy palaces are;
Like unto glass with thy sapphire and gold,
Half of thy beauty can never be told.

Beautiful city of Zion,
Glorious, golden and fair;
Beautiful city of Zion,
O, how I long to be there!

2 City of Zion! glorious, bright,
Glitt’ring thy tow’rs in the heavenly light;
Garnished with em’ralds and gems from the mine
Flash pearly gates of the city divine! [Chorus]

3 City of Zion! home of the blest!
Often I dream of thy sweetness and rest;
Often there floats on the still ev’ning air,
Songs from the lips of the glorified there! [Chorus]
