Representative Text

1. The sun shines bright in the new Jerusalem,
'Tis summer forever, they say,
It is always spring and the flowers ever bloom,
In the New Jerusalem far away.

Chorus.
Weep no more, my brother,
O weep no more, I say;
Let us sing one song for the New Jerusalem,
For the New Jerusalem far away.

2. The gates are pearl and the streets are paved with gold,
Transparent, and brighter than day;
Many mansions there–ready for us, I am told,
In the New Jerusalem far away. (Chorus)

3. There white robed saints sing the praises of the King,
While angels their golden harps play;
With sweet melody heaven's vaulted arches ring,
In the New Jerusalem far away. (Chorus)

4. There no pain, no sickness, nor death can ever come,
All sorrow is banished for aye;
We will find sweet rest and with Jesus be at home,
In the New Jerusalem far away. (Chorus)
