Golden city, glorious city

Representative Text

1 Just beyond there is a city,
Just beyond a golden shore,
Where the saints of all the ages
Dwell with Jesus evermore.

Golden city, glorious city,
We shall see the walls so fair;
Just beyond are loved ones waiting,
Oh, what rapture to be there!

2 Just a thin veil intervening
Hides that city from our sight,
Where our loved ones dwell with Jesus,
Who is of that land the light. [Refrain]

3 Only just across the river
We shall wave the victor’s palm,
As we join the songs of angels,
Singing, Glory to the Lamb. [Refrain]

4 Oh, what joy to be with Jesus!
Time forever at and end;
Evermore to sing his praises,
Our Redeemer, Saviour, Friend. [Refrain]
