Jerusalem The Beautiful Its Glories Are


Jerusalem, the beautiful!
Its glories are untold;
Its walls are built of precious stones,
Its pavements made of gold;
Its mansions for the ransomed ones
In matchless splendor shine;
Jerusalem, the beautiful!
Jerusalem, divine.

Jerusalem, the beautiful!
Its gates of pearly white,
To voice of prayer and song of praise,
Are open day and night;
And shining ones around the throne
In sweeter rapture sing;-
Jerusalem, the beautiful!
When saints their tribute bring.

Jerusalem, the beautiful!
My everlasting rest!
My glorious home, the saints’ above,
The city of the blest;
The temple of the Holy One,
Thy light is all divine;
Jerusalem, the beautiful!
I love to call thee mine.
