Verse 1
After this dismal and dark world
Eternal glory waits
A country of eternal joy
No mortal eye hath seen

Verse 2
Our eyes long to see half Thy joy
Beautiful city, bright
How our hearts would have wished to leave
This world, the vale of tears

Verse 3
No sickness nor pain will be there
No sorrow will be there,
It's health and joy e'en all day long,
Pleasures that never end

Verse 4
No night in those fair cities bright
It is perpetual day
For sin, the source of all the curse
Will not enter therein

Verse 5
May this cherished hope of heaven
Set all our hearts aflame
Grant to us that this faith and love
Lift high our thoughts to God

Verse 6
O Lord, in mercy, make us meet
For Thy bright courts above,
And grant that our hearts may prepare
To join the heavenly throng
