1 While walking the streets of a city,
I saw there the palaces grand,
And thought of the building up yonder,
That home in the heav’nly land.
O city of pearl and of jasper!
O city of day without night!
On the throne ‘neath the emerald rainbow
Is Jesus, himself the light.
2 Mine eyes have not looked on the mansion
That Jesus has gone to prepare;
My heart has no concept of riches
The Saviour with me will share. [Refrain]
3 My friends will abide in that city,
All those who are under the blood,
We’ll meet there to separate never,
To dwell in the city of God. [Refrain]
