1 There will be a blissful morning when the earthly night has flown,
And the glory-light will all around us lie;
In “Jerusalem, the golden,” only is that splendor known,
And we’ll gather in that city by and by.
We shall gather in that city,
We shall gather in the city built on high, by and by;
O “Jerusalem, the blest,” where the saints with Jesus rest!
We shall gather in that city, by and by.
2 We shall come from ev’ry nation in ways separated wide,
Crossing one by one the darkly flowing stream,
Then upon the shore eternal, just beyond the solemn tide,
We shall meet where tow’ring walls of jasper gleam. [Refrain]
3 We shall gather with redeemed ones wearing garments pure and white,
Chanting with exultant voices vict’ry’s psalm;
O how sweet will be that meeting in the dawn of heaven’s light,
As we sing glad hallelujahs to the Lamb. [Refrain]
