Representative Text

1 I’m thinking today of that city beyond,
Whose streets are all paved with pure gold;
The saved ones shall dwell there with hearts ever fond,
And none there shall ever grow old.

O beautiful city of gold:
Its mansions I long to behold;
My burdens seem lighter,
My pathway grows brighter,
When I think of that ci­ty of gold.

2 My Savior is now in that city so fair,
Designing a home for His own;
Some day He will call them to dwell with Him there,
’Mid joys which no mortal hath known. [Refrain]

3 How often I think of that city on high,
Where thieves cannot break through and steal;
There anthems of praise shall resound thro’ the sky,
And Jesus His face shall reveal. [Refrain]
