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.

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]
