The ci-ty of our God

Now bursts up-on my sight,

And hosts of the re-deemed

Ar-rayed in spotless white;

The crown of righteous-ness,

En-cir-cles every brow;

The toils and cares of earth

Are all for-got-ten now.

The palm of victory

Is waving in the hand

Of all who, in that throng,

Before the Saviour stand;

They sing a lofty strain,

The numbers of their hymn

Excel the noblest notes

Of the bright seraphim.

Salvation is their theme,

Salvation to our God!

Salvation to the Lamb!

Who saved us by his blood:

For in that precious blood

They've washed away each stain,

And in his kingdom now

Eternally they reign.
