1. Beautiful Zion, built above;Beautiful city that I love;Beautiful gates of pearly white;Beautiful temple—God its light;He who was slain on CalvaryOpens those pearly gates for me.
[Chorus]Zion, Zion, lovely Zion;Beautiful Zion;Zion, city of our God!
2. Beautiful heav’n, where all is light;Beautiful angels clothed in white;Beautiful strains that never tire;Beautiful harps thru all the choir;There shall I join the chorus sweet,Worshiping at the Savior’s feet.
3. Beautiful crowns on ev’ry brow;Beautiful palms the conq’rors show;Beautiful robes the ransomed wear;Beautiful all who enter there;Thither I press with eager feet;There shall my rest be long and sweet.
