Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Golden city

Soon we'll see the golden city

Words arr. by: George J. French; Author: A. Kemp
Published in 6 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Soon we'll see the golden city,
Soon we'll hear the angels sing,
And the harps attuned by seraphs,
Loud will make the heavens ring.

We will walk thro' the streets of the city,
With the friends we have lov'd by our side,
We shall sit by the banks of the river,
In that land we shall ever abide.

2 Blessed city, home of angels,
With its streets all paved with gold,
Pearly gates and living fountains,
Where the pleasures ne'er grow old. [Chorus]

3 Jesus' glory ever shining,
Trees of life in grandeur stand,
Clouds of love with silver lining,
In that happy Eden land. [Chorus]

4 Friends and kindred who have loved us,
Hearts that often beat as one,
There shall join the glorious number,
And shall sing around the throne. [Chorus]
