Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.

Representative Text

1 There's a city that looks o'er the valley of death,
And its glories can never be told;
There the sun never sets, and the leaves never fade,
In that beautiful city of gold.

There the sun never sets,
and the leaves never fade;
And the eyes of the faithful our Saviour behold,
In that beautiful city of gold.

2 There the King, our Redeemer, the Lord whom we love,
All the faithful with joy shall behold:
There the righteous forever shall shine as the stars,
In that beautiful city of gold. [Chorus]

3 Every soul we have led to the foot of the cross,
Every lamb we have brought to the fold--
Shall be there as bright jewels, our crowns to adorn,
In that beautiful city of gold. [Chorus]

4 There we'll tell how he loved and redeemed us from sin,
But the half even there can't be told;
There we'll sing the new song with the blood-washed at home,
In that beautiful city of gold [Chorus]
