1 Where the jasper walls are beaming,
Where the pearly portals are glowing,
Where the golden street is gleaming,
Where the crystal waters are flowing.

Refrain:
Down beside that wondrous river,
Where the tress of healing grow,
We shall meet and live forever,
To that city will you go?

2 Open are the shining portals;
Shut by day or night are they never;
With the glorified immortals,
Will you dwell with them forevermore? [Refrain]

3 In that many-mansioned dwelling,
Jesus one for you is preparing;
Where hosannas glad are swelling,
Will you come, there joy sweetly sharing? [Refrain]

4 Joyfully into the keeping
Of our loving Lord are we going;
No more sorrow, pain, nor weeping—
No more waves of woe o’er us flowing. [Refrain]

5 There shall be no days declining,
Tho’ no sun nor moon light the heaven;
From amidst the throne is shining
Glory, from the Lord freely given. [Refrain]
