1 There's a city that looks o'er the valley of death,
And its glories can never be told;
There the sun never sets, and the leaves never fade,
In that beautiful city of gold.

Chorus:
There the sun never sets,
and the leaves never fade;
And the eyes of the faithful our Saviour behold,
In that beautiful city of gold.

2 There the King, our Redeemer, the Lord whom we love,
All the faithful with joy shall behold:
There the righteous forever shall shine as the stars,
In that beautiful city of gold. [Chorus]

3 Every soul we have led to the foot of the cross,
Every lamb we have brought to the fold--
Shall be there as bright jewels, our crowns to adorn,
In that beautiful city of gold. [Chorus]

4 There we'll tell how he loved and redeemed us from sin,
But the half even there can't be told;
There we'll sing the new song with the blood-washed at home,
In that beautiful city of gold [Chorus]
