Bathed in unfallen sunlight, Itself a sunborn gem, Fair gleams the glorious city, The new Jerusalem! City fairest, splendor rarest, Let me gaze on thee! O city fairest, splendor rarest, Home for all the free!
Calm in her queenly glory, She sits all joy and light: Pure in her bridal beauty, Her raiment festal white! Home of gladness, free from sadness, Let me dwell in thee! O home of gladness, free from sadness, Mine eternally!
Shading her golden pavement, The tree of life is seen, Its fruit-rich branches waving, Celestial evergreen. Tree of wonder, let me under Thee forever rest! O tree of wonder, let me under Thy rich boughs be blest!
Rich are the priceless jewels That deck her mighty wall, And from the throne of God-head A wondrous radiance falls. City fairest, splendor rarest, Let me gaze on thee! O city fairest, splendor rarest, Home for all the free!
