HOLY CITY COMING DOWN
© 1982 William C. Highsmith


THERE'S - A CITY YONDER WAITING -
FAR BEYOND THE STARRY SKIES -
A LAND OF PEACE AND HARMONY
A LAND OF LOVE.
A LAND OF LOVE.

OH! THE WALLS ARE MADE OF JASPER
AND THE STREETS ARE PAVED WITH GOLD -
THERE'S A RAINBOW 'ROUND ABOUT -
THE THRONE OF GOD.
THE THRONE OF GOD.

THERE - THE LIVING WATER FLOWETH
OUT UNTO THE CRYSTAL SEA -
FLOWING FROM THE THRONE OF GOD -
AND OF THE LAMB.
AND OF THE LAMB.

ON THE BANKS OF THE CRYSTAL RIVER
THERE ON EACH AND EVERY SIDE -
WE SHALL LOOK UPON THE PRECIOUS
TREE OF LIVE.
THAT TREE OF LIFE.

HE - HAS PROMISED ME A MANSION
AND OF THIS I AM ASSURED,
I WILL LIVE FOREVER ON THAT
GOLDEN SHORE.
THAT GOLDEN SHORE.

IN - THAT GREAT AND FINAL DAY
HE WILL ROLL THE CLOUDS AWAY.
I SHALL SEE THE HOLY CITY
COMING DOWN.
IT'S COMING DOWN.

CHORUS:

I WANT TO SEE THE CITY - THE CITY OF GOD -
THE CITY OF GOD.
I WANT TO SEE THE HOLY CITY COMING DOWN.
I WANT TO SEE THE CITY - THE CITY OF GOD.
THE CITY OF GOD.
I WANT TO SEE THE HOLY CITY - COME ON DOWN.
THE CITY COME DOWN.
THE CITY COME DOWN.
