Who, who are these
Clothed in garments pure and white?
Walking the streets of that city fair and bright,
Dwelling in light where no
Burning rays are known,
Standing near the great eternal throne.
Walking thro’ the streets, walking thro’ the streets,
Walking thro’ the streets of the New Jerusalem.
These, these are they
Who through tribulation came,
Bearing the cross—
Who endured reproach and shame;
Having their robes washed in
Blood of Calvary’s Lamb,
Therefore do they bear the conqueror’s palm.
Therefore they dwell
With the Savior they behold,
Walk through the streets
That are paved with purest gold,
Freed from all sorrow,
They shout o’er conflict passed,
Praise to Jesus—victory at last.
