While Walking The Streets Of A City


While walking the streets of a city,
I saw there the palaces grand,
And thought of the building up yonder,
That home in the heav’nly land.

Refrain:
O city of pearl and of jasper!
O city of day without night!
On the throne ‘neath the emerald rainbow
Is Jesus, himself the light.

Mine eyes have not looked on the mansion
That Jesus has gone to prepare;
My heart has no concept of riches
The Saviour with me will share. [Refrain]

My friends will abide in that city,
All those who are under the blood,
We’ll meet there to separate never,
To dwell in the city of God. [Refrain]
