Je-ru---salem my happy home,
O how I long for thee!
When will - my sorrows have an end,
Thy joys when shall I see!
We're marching through Imman-uel's ground,
We soon shall hear the trum-pet sound,
And then we shall our Je-sus meet,
And never, never part again,
What never part again?
No never part again;
Thy walls are all of precious stone,
Most glorious to behold;
Thy gates are richly set with pearl,
Thy streets are paved with gold.
Thy garden and thy pleasant walks
My study long have been;
Such dazzling views by human sight
Have never yet been seen.
If heaven be thus glorious, Lord,
Why should I stay from thence!
What folly's this that I should dread
To die, and go from hence.
When we've been there ten thousand years,
Bright shinning as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we first begun.
