Lyrics

Verse 1
Just beyond there is a city,
Just beyond a golden shore,
Where the saints of all the ages
Dwell with Jesus evermore.

Chorus
Golden city, glorious city,
We shall see the walls so fair;
Just beyond are loved ones waiting,
Oh, what rapture to be there!

Verse 2
Just a thin veil intervening
Hides that city from our sight,
Where our loved ones dwell with Jesus,
Who is of that land the light.

Verse 3
Only just across the river
We shall wave the victor’s palm,
As we join the songs of angels,
Singing, Glory to the Lamb.

Verse 4
Oh, what joy to be with Jesus!
Time forever at and end;
Evermore to sing his praises,
Our Redeemer, Saviour, Friend.
