Jerusalem Forever Bright


Jerusalem, for ever bright-
Beautiful land of rest,
No winter there, nor chill of night-
Beautiful land of rest!
The dripping cloud is chased away,
The sun breaks forth in endless day-
Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
The beautiful land of rest.

Refrain:
Beautiful land, beautiful land,
Beautiful land of rest;
Beautiful land, beautiful land,
Beautiful land of rest.

Jerusalem, for ever free-
Beautiful land of rest!
The soul’s sweet home of liberty-
Beautiful land of rest!
The gyves of sin, the chains of woe,
The ransomed there will never know,
Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
The beautiful land of rest. [Refrain]

Jerusalem, for ever dear-
Beautiful land of rest!
Thy pearly gates almost appear-
Beautiful land of rest!
And when we tread thy lovely shore,
We’ll sing the song we’ve sung before-
Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
The beautiful land of rest. [Refrain]
