        1. Jerusalem, my happy home,
        Name ever dear to me,
        When shall my labors have an end?
        Thy joys when shall I see?

        2. When shall these eyes thy heav'n-built walls
        And pearly gates behold,
        Thy bulwarks with salvation strong,
        And streets of shining gold?

        3. Oh, when, thou city of my God,
        Shall I thy courts ascend
        Where evermore the angels sing,
        Where Sabbaths have no end?

        4. Apostles, martyrs, prophets, there
        Around my Savior stand;
        And soon my friends in Christ below
        Will join the glorious band.

        5. Jerusalem, my happy home,
        When shall I come to thee?
        When shall my labors have an end?
        Thy joys when shall I see?

        6. O Christ, do Thou my soul prepare
        For that bright home of love
        That I may see Thee and adore
        With all Thy saints above.
