Wonderful City, The

I’m waiting watching and longing
That beautiful sight to behold
When I shall awake some bright morning
In that city with streets of pure gold

My savior has gone to prepare it
For all who accept his grace
And that’s why I know I’ll be welcome
To a home in that wonderful place

   When I reach my home in that city
   Shall I find you waiting up there
   With the saints who have gone on before us
   To that beautiful home so fair
   My whole heart is set upon heaven
   Where my savior’s face I shall see
   And live in the light of his glory
   Throughout all eternity


He bids us to work in His vineyard
To toil for Him early and late
What a glorious reward for our labor
To enter that beautiful gate
