The Wonderful City


I'm waiting watching and longing

That beautiful sight to behold

When I shall awake some bright morning

In that city with streets of pure gold


My savior has gone to prepare it

For all who accept his grace

And that's why I know I'll be welcome

To a home in that wonderful place


When I reach my home in that city

Shall I find you waiting up there

With the saints who have gone on before us

To that beautiful home so fair

My whole heart is set upon heaven

Where my savior's face I shall see

And live in the light of his glory

Throughout all eternity




He bids us to work in His vineyard

To toil for Him early and late

What a glorious reward for our labor

To enter that beautiful gate
