1 Have you heard of that bright city,
With its open pearly gates?
Where the ransomed ones are singing,
And the loved ones for us wait.

Refrain:
Over there the angels wait.
Over there,
At the beautiful pearly gat.

2 Have you heard of that bright river,
Clear as crystal pure and free?
Flowing from the throne of glory,
Soon its beauties we shall see. [Refrain]

3 Will you go to that bright city,
With immortals will you live?
Trust in Jesus, love and serve Him,
And eternal life He’ll give. [Refrain]
