Representative Text

1 In the land of fadeless day
Lies the city four-square;
It shall never pass away,
And there is no night there.

Refrain:
God shall wipe away all tears;
There's no death, no pain, nor fears;
And they count not time by years,
For there is no night there.

2 All the gates of pearl are made,
In the city four-square;
All the streets with gold are laid,
And there is no night there. [Refrain]

3 And the gates shall never close
To the city four-square;
There life's crystal river flows,
And there is no night there. [Refrain]

4 There they need no sunshine bright,
In that city four-square;
For the Lamb is all the light,
And there is no night there. [Refrain]
