There is a city built on high,
From earthly sorrows free,
Bought by a Savior’s precious blood,
A home for you and me.


I will meet you in that city,
In that bright celestial city,
Where all sorrow, pain,
And parting will be o’er;
I will meet you in that city,
In God’s everlasting city,
There we’ll praise Him
With our loved ones gone before.

Its gates are pearl, its streets are gold,
Its walls are jewels rare;
No need of sun or moon to shine,
For God is brightness there.


There peace and joy will reign complete,
There’ll be no night or strife;
Oh, will your name be written in
The Lamb’s great book of life?
