Representative Text

1 Oh, the city of the Lord is coming down,
Oh, the city of the Lord is coming down;
When the saints for Jesus waiting
Shall receive the victor’s crown,
When the city of the Lord cometh down.

Refrain:
Cometh down, cometh down,
When the city of the Lord cometh down,
There’ll be glory all around,
When the waiting saints are crowned;
When the city of the Lord cometh down.

2 There’ll be joy in earth and Heaven in that day,
There’ll be joy in earth and Heaven in that day;
We’ll sing glory, hallelujah!
When we all receive a crown,
When the city of the Lord cometh down. [Refrain]

3 All the people of the Lord shall be as one,
All the people of the Lord shall be as one;
When the Bridegroom comes in glory,
And we all receive a crown,
When the city of the Lord cometh down. [Refrain]

4 There will be no death nor sorrow in that day,
There will be no death nor sorrow in that day;
For the hand of God, our Father,
All our tears shall wipe away,
When the city of the Lord cometh down. [Refrain]

5 In that lovely golden city we are told,
In that lovely golden city we are told;
Saints will all unite in singing
With a golden harp and crown,
When the city of the Lord cometh down. [Refrain]
