1 We have a strong city, in Judah’s fair land,
Its walls are salvation, appointed to stand;
Salvation its bulwarks that never may fall,
Jehovah its builder, He’s all and in all.

Refrain:
O city, fair City! thou beauteous place;
Thy gates swing wide open, thy temples are grace;
Who enter thy portals, forever remain;
There’s peace, perfect peace, for Jehovah doth reign,
There’s peace, perfect peace, for Jehovah doth reign.

2 Then open the gates, let the righteous who hold
His truth, enter in, and become of His fold;
He’ll keep them in peace, if their mind is but stayed;
And so they may trust Him, and be not afraid. [Refrain]

3 Forever and ever, O trust ye the Lord;
He’ll keep whosoever believeth His word.
Jehovah, thy strength, everlasting shall be;
Then open, fair city we come unto thee. [Refrain]
