Jerusalem the golden!

With milk and honey blest;

Beneath thy contemplation

Sink heart and voice opprest.

I know not, O I know not,

What joys await us there!

What radiancy of glory!

What bliss beyond compare!

466

They stand, those halls of Sion,

All jubilant with song,

And bright with many an angel,

And all the martyr throng.

The Prince is ever in them,

The daylight is serene;

The pastures of the blessèd

Are decked in glorious sheen.

There is the throne of David;

And there, from care released,

The shout of them that triumph,

The song of them that feast.

And they who with their Leader

Have conquered in the fight,

For ever and for ever

Are clad in robes of white.

O sweet and blessèd country,

The home of God's elect!

O sweet and blessèd country,

That eager hearts expect!

Jesus, in mercy bring us

To that dear land of rest!

Who art, with God the Father,

And Spirit, ever blest.

Amen.
