James H. Rosecrans (1843-1926)

There is a habitation,
Built by the living God,
For all of every nation,
Who seek that grand abode.

Refrain

O Sion, Sion,
I long thy gates to see;
O Sion, Sion,
When shall I dwell in thee?

A city with foundations,
Firm as th’eternal throne;
Nor wars, nor desolations
Shall ever move a stone.

Refrain

No night is there, no sorrow,
No death, and no decay;
No yesterday, no morrow—
But one eternal day.

Refrain

Within its pearly portals,
Angelic armies sing,
With glorified immortals,
The praises of its king.
