Scripture: Revelation 21:2
1 Jerusalem the golden, With milk and honey blest,
Beneath your contemplation Sink heart and voice oppressed.
I know not, oh, I know not, What social joys are there,
What radiancy of glory, What bliss beyond compare.
2 They stand, those halls of Zion, Conjubilant with song
And bright with many an angel And all the martyr throng.
The prince is ever in them; The day light is serene;
The pastures of the blessed Are decked in glorious sheen.
3 There is the throne of David, And there, from care released,
The shout of those who triumph, The song of those who feast.
And they, who with their leader Have conquered in the fight,
Forever and forever are clad in robes of white.
4 Oh, sweet and blessed country, The home of God's elect!
Oh, sweet and blessed country, That eager hearts expect!
In mercy, Jesus, bring us To that dear land of rest!
You are, with God the Father And Spirit, ever blest.
