The Eternal City

We see the Eternal City
Her Foundations tried by fire.
We see the Eternal City
And hear the Angels’ Choir.
Within her gates all Life is found.
Her Treasure’s worth more than gold.
In her, Our Lord and Saviour dwells.
His Face the Saints behold.
Oh, yearn my heart for Her to come.
Jerusalem, Oh, so fair.
To walk among the Saints of Old,
To live victorious there.
Think not my soul, “She will not come.
Her comings just a dream.”
Look up and wait,
The time is short…
All’s not as it may seem.
The time for her arrival is drawing
Oh, so nigh.
Be vigilant, My Brothers,
To hear the watchman’s cry!
The City of Our God will come;
As surely as will He.
Be watchful; Keep believing.
Our Saviour, we will see!
We see the Eternal City,
Her foundations tried by fire.
We see the Eternal City,
And, hear the Angels’ Choir!
