Jerusalem the blissful

O Jerusalem the blissful, home of gladness yet untold,|
Thou whose countless throngs triumphal fill with joy thy street of gold
Graven on thee, new and glorious, they the King’s own Name behold!
thy sons, O mother, yon august and shining band!
Here, a figure of the heavenly, shines our temple, worthier grown
Lord, we pray Thee, Master Builder, great and holy, enter in,
Make Thy servants, though unworthy, temples of Thy grace to be;
Make, O royal Priest, Thine altar here henceforth a throne of light,
Yea, our hearts, for these Thou judgest, as Thy cleansèd altars bless,
Now to Thee, through endless ages, O most holy Trinity,
