In the beautiful city

Representative Text

1 We are walking in the bright and shining way,
The beautiful way,
The beautiful way;
Come and join us as we journey on today,
Come and walk in this bright and beautiful way.

Refrain:
Come and walk in the beautiful way,
Come and follow the Savior today,
Come, oh, come, and no longer delay,
Come and walk in this bright and beautiful way.

2 There is glory shining in this path so bright,
A beautiful way,
A beautiful way;
Come and join us, leave the darkness, walk in light,
Come and walk in this bright and beautiful way. [Refrain]

3 Leave the path of sin, for there’s a better one,
The beautiful way,
The beautiful way;
Come with us, destruction’s way, now quickly shun,
Come and walk in this bright and beautiful way. [Refrain]

4 All around us shine the golden beams of love,
A beautiful way,
A beautiful way;
We are going to a happy home above,
Come and walk in this bright and beautiful way. [Refrain]
