1. Jerusalem, thou city bright
From Heav’n to earth descending,
How wondrously their holy light
Thy precious stones are blending.

O city fair, O city blest,
All joy to mortals bringing,
Who would not raise his voice in praise
And thy dear name be singing!

2. O gates of pearl,
O streets of gold,
O river ever flowing
Where leads the Shepherd to the fold
The flock their Savior knowing. [Refrain]

3. Shine, holy light, within our hearts
All evil shade dispelling,
That we ne’er from Thy way depart,
Which leads to that blest dwelling. [Refrain]
