BEAUTIFUL CITY OF GOD
© 1982 W. C. Highsmith


THERE'S A LAND I'M LONGING TO SEE -
A PLACE TO SPEND ETERNITY -
A PLACE WHERE MANSIONS HAVE BEEN BUILT
FOR YOU AND ME.
THERE THE STREETS ARE PAVED WITH GOLD.
OH! THE HALF CANNOT BE TOLD.
WORDS CANNOT DESCRIBE
THE BEAUTIFUL CITY OF GOD.

THE DAY WILL COME, IT WON'T BE LONG,
WE'LL JOIN IN A GLAD NEW SONG -
A SONG OF PRAISES TO OUR LORD -
THE KING OF KINGS.
WHEN THE CHORUS OF ANGELS SINGS,
WE SHALL LET OUR VOICES RING -
WITH HARMONY THERE IN
THE BEAUTIFUL CITY OF GOD.

OH! WHAT GLORY BEYOND DEGREE
WHEN AT LAST HIS FACE WE SEE.
WE HAVE WAITED ALL THESE YEARS
SINCE CALVARY.
THERE'LL BE NO PAIN IN THAT GREAT LAND -
SCARS WON'T MARK HIS PRECIOUS HANDS -
JOY WILL REIGN THERE IN
THE BEAUTIFUL CITY OF GOD.

THE CITY OF GOD - THE CITY OF GOD
THE GREAT AND WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL CITY OF GOD.
