O beautiful that heavenly scene:
That mansion in the sky!
Our Father has prepared for those
Who follow truth and right.
Lord Jesus Christ, Lord Jesus Christ;
The Son of God on high!
Forever we will live with Thee
Nor ever mourn or die!
O beautiful for powerful love—
That brought Christ from the grave!
He conquered sin and Satan’s host,
For all He came to save!
O beautiful the feet of those
Who eagerly pursue
The zeal of Christ, the Lord of hosts—
And preach the gospel truth!
O beautiful the meek and low:
Who seek not their own;
But humbly follow after Christ—
His blessing is their crown!
O beautiful, our heavenly home,
Far better than below;
The city not by human hands
Surrounding God’s own throne!
