Refrain:
Oh! what a beautiful city,
Oh! what a beautiful city,
Oh! what a beautiful city,
Twelve gates-a to the city, Hallelujah!

1 There’s three gates in-a the East,
three gates in-a the West;
Three gates in-a the North,
and three gates in-a the South,
making it twelve gates-a to the city, a-Hallelujah. (refrain)

2 O, my Lord built-a that day,
that was just a-fore square;
wanted all-a you sinners
to meet Him in-a the air,
’Cause He built twelve gates-a to the city, a-Hallelujah. (refrain)
