1 There is a city, so I’ve been told,
With gates of pearl and streets of gold;
It’s a walled in city, on eternal heights,
Where it’s always day, with never a night.

Let’s go to the city, and a land of song,
Where all is right and there’s no wrong;
I’m just awaiting for the trumpet sound,
Goodbye, old world, I’m heaven bound.

2 There is a city, so bright and fair,
There is no death, no sorrows there;
It’s a beautiful place, come and go with me
To that happy home by the crystal sea. [Refrain]

3 I’ve been invited, so I must go,
And meet my Lord, who loved me so;
There I’ll see His face, and His glory share,
And ever rejoice with the angels there. [Refrain]

4 There is a city with mansions fair,
All the redeemed shall gather there;
Hurry and get washed in the crimson flow,
For your robe must be whiter than the snow. [Refrain]
