I…saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of Heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God.@Revelation 21:2–3

L. A. Mor­ris, 1910 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Oh, the city of the Lord is coming down,
Oh, the city of the Lord is coming down;
When the saints for Jesus waiting
Shall receive the victor’s crown,
When the city of the Lord cometh down.

Refrain

Cometh down, cometh down,
When the city of the Lord cometh down,
There’ll be glory all around,
When the waiting saints are crowned;
When the city of the Lord cometh down.

There’ll be joy in earth and Heaven in that day,
There’ll be joy in earth and Heaven in that day;
We’ll sing glory, hallelujah!
When we all receive a crown,
When the city of the Lord cometh down.

Refrain

All the people of the Lord shall be as one,
All the people of the Lord shall be as one;
When the Bridegroom comes in glory,
And we all receive a crown,
When the city of the Lord cometh down.

Refrain

There will be no death nor sorrow in that day,
There will be no death nor sorrow in that day;
For the hand of God, our Father,
All our tears shall wipe away,
When the city of the Lord cometh down.

Refrain

In that lovely golden city we are told,
In that lovely golden city we are told;
Saints will all unite in singing
With a golden harp and crown,
When the city of the Lord cometh down.

Refrain
