Within Thy Gates Of Peace O City


Within Thy gates of peace,
O city, fair to see,
Our feet from wand’ring soon shall cease,
And find a rest in Thee.

Refrain:
O jewel-walled Jerusalem!
With pearly gates thrown wide,
How gladly shall we enter in,
And evermore abide.

Beyond Thy jasper wall
What glory there awaits
For those who, at the Father’s call,
With joy approach Thy gates! [Refrain]

Upon Thy streets of god
Our toil-worn feet shall stand;
Nor pleasures fade, nor joys grow old,
Within that peaceful land. [Refrain]

Free from each earthly wile,
Our feet no more shall roam;
And, best of all, a Saviour’s smile
Will be our welcome home. [Refrain]
