2  Thy turrets and thy pinnacles With jewels rare do shine,
Thy very streets are paved with gold
Surpassing pure and fine. No murky cloud o'ershadows thee,
Nor gloom, nor darksome night; But every soul shines as the sun,
For God Himself gives light.
3  Thy gardens and thy goodly walks Continually are green,
Where grow such sweet and pleasant flowers As nowhere else are seen.
Right through thy streets, with silver sound
The living waters flow, And on the banks, on every side, The trees of life do grow.
4 Those trees for evermore bear fruit,
And evermore do spring: There evermore the angels are,
And evermore do sing. Jerusalem, my happy home,
Would God I were in thee! Would God my woes were at an end,
Thy joys that I might see!
( Founded on " F. B. P." MSS., i6th or 17th Cent J
