1
JERUSALEM, the holy,
Whose builder is her God,
Resplendent with His glory
Her shining spreads abroad;
Descending out of heaven
To fill with Christ in grace,
In blest administration,
As bride and wife, her place!
2
Jerusalem, eternal!
The city of Christ's God,
Thine origin celestial,
Thou art His blest abode;
Thy beauty all adorning
For Him whose bride thou art,
To fill with joy unfading,
With Christ, thine endless part!
3
O residence of glory!
God's tabernacle then,
Where He - O wondrous story -
Doth dwell so near to men;
Where new creation's splendour
Doth hold our raptured gaze,
Kept by the Spirit's power,
And moved by Christ to praise!
4
The Father, source of glory -
The Son, the centre blest -
The Spirit all pervading -
The Fulness pleased, at rest!
O God supreme, we bless Thee,
And praise Thy glorious Name
For of Thee, through Thee, for Thee
Are all things now, Amen.
