Beautiful Zion, built above

Beautiful Zion, built above
Beautiful city that I love
Beautiful gates of pearly white
Beautiful temple – God its light
He who was slain on Calvary
Opens those pearly gates for me.

Zion, Zion, lovely Zion
Beautiful Zion
Zion, city of our God!

Beautiful heav’n, where all is light
Beautiful angels clothed in white
Beautiful strains that never tire
Beautiful harps thru all the choir
There shall I join the chorus sweet,
Worshiping at the Savior’s feet.

Beautiful crowns on ev’ry brow
Beautiful palms the conq’rors show
Beautiful robes the ransomed wear
Beautiful all who enter there
Thither I press with eager feet
There shall my rest be long and sweet.
