Built by Jehovah’s hand,
The holy city see:
Its happy gates wide open stand:
To enter all are free.

One bright, eternal day
Shall in the city reign,
Darkness and death are fled away,
Ne’er to return again.

O blessèd, happy state!
Great God, we thankful come,
Low at Thy footstool humbly wait,
And make Thy church our home.

Jerusalem shall be
Our peaceful, blest abode:
Here we will love and honor Thee,
Our Savior and our God!
