1 There’s a pathway made straight,
Leading up to the gate
Of the wonderful city of gold;
Tho’ dark ages have rolled,
Yet it leads as of old,
To the wonderful city of gold.

Refrain:
Cheer, brother, cheer!
Drive away doubt and fears,
We are trav’ling the pathway of old;
Oh! ’tis brighter today,
As we press on the way,
To the wonderful city of gold.

2 Countless millions have gone
O’er this pathway along,
To the wonderful city of gold;
Nevermore they shall roam,
For they’re now safe at home,
In the wonderful city of gold. [Refrain]

3 Many loved ones of ours,
Rest ’neath Eden’s holy bowers,
In the wonderful city of gold;
Now they join with the throng,
As they sing redemption’s song,
In the wonderful city of gold. [Refrain]

4 Every step I’ll renew,
As I onward pursue,
To the wonderful city of gold;
At the gate I’ll exclaim,
"Saved by grace thro’ Jesus’ name,"
As I enter the city of gold. [Refrain]
