1 Beautiful city, blessed and fair,
Beautiful country, treasures most rare,
Beautiful land, who thy glories can tell—
With the redeem’d ones we there shall dwell.

Refrain:
Beautiful city, beautiful city,
Fashioned by Jesus the builder divine;
Beautiful city, beautiful city,
O when shall thy pleasures be mine.

2 Beautiful city, lovely thy light,
Beautiful city—never ‘tis night,
Beautiful mansion prepared there for me;
O how I long thy rich beauties to see. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful home when shall we be there,
Beautiful land, thy happiness share,
Beautiful city we long for the rest,
There with the Saviour be happy and blest. [Refrain]
