George C. Hugg (🔊 pdf nwc).

Who, who are these clothed in garments pure and white?
Walking the streets of that city fair and bright,
Dwelling in light where no burning rays are known,
Standing near the great eternal throne.

Refrain

Walking thro’ the streets, walking thro’ the streets,
Walking thro’ the streets of the New Jerusalem.

These, these are they who through tribulation came,
Bearing the cross—who endured reproach and shame;
Having their robes washed in blood of Calvary’s Lamb,
Therefore do they bear the conqueror’s palm.

Refrain

Therefore they dwell with the Savior they behold,
Walk through the streets that are paved with purest gold,
Freed from all sorrow, they shout o’er conflict passed,
Praise to Jesus—victory at last.

Refrain
