The City of Gold

Representative Text

1 There's a promise recorded in God's holy word,
It is blessed in beauty untold;
That we never shall hunger, or thirst anymore,
In that wonderful city of gold.

There we'll dwell evermore,
And we'll never grow old;
There the righteous forever Shall shine like the stars,
In that wonderful city of gold.

2 In this world we have sorrows and troubles and cares,
But we'll enter with Jesus the fold;
He will lead us along thro' the pastures so green,
In that wonderful city of gold. [Chorus]

3 There all sickness and sorrow and death are unknown;
There the glories on glories unfold;
There the Lamb is the light in the midst of the throne,
In that wonderful city of gold. [Chorus]
