Through The New Jerusalem


Thro’ the new Jerusalem,
Lined with fairest flowers,
Flows a pure and crystal stream,
Wat’ring the heavenly bowers;
On its banks we hope to stand,
Close by the beautiful river.
Then to join the ransomed band,
Singing and praising forever.

Refrain:
Close by the beautiful river,
Close by the beautiful river,
There to join the ransomed band,
Singing and praising forever.

There are saints in robes of white,
Who have gone before us,
With the angels they unite,
Swelling the heavenly chorus.
And with them we hope to stand,
Close by the beautiful river.
Then to join the ransomed band,
Singing and praising forever. [Refrain]
