There is a city, so Ive been told,
With gates of pearl and streets of gold;
Its a walled in city, on eternal heights,
Where its always day, with never a night.
Lets go to the city, and a land of song,
Where all is right and theres no wrong;
Im just awaiting for the trumpet sound,
Goodbye, old world, Im heaven bound.
- There is a city, so bright and fair,
There is no death, no sorrows there;
Its a beautiful place, come and go with me
To that happy home by the crystal sea.
- Ive been invited, so I must go,
And meet my Lord, who loved me so;
There Ill see His face, and His glory share,
And ever rejoice with the angels there.
- There is a city with mansions fair,
All the redeemed shall gather there;
Hurry and get washed in the crimson flow,
For your robe must be whiter than the snow.
