Jerusalem the golden
Tune: Ewing
Metre: 7676 D

 

Jerusalem the golden,

With milk and honey blest,

Beneath thy contemplation

Sink heart and voice oppressed:

I know not, O I know not

What social joys are there,

What radiancy of glory,

What light beyond compare.

 

They stand, those halls of Zion,

Conjubilant with song,

And bright with many an angel,

And all the martyr throng:

The Prince is ever in them;

The daylight is serene;

The pastures of the blessŤd

Are decked in glorious sheen.

 

There is the throne of David,

And there, from care released,

The shout of them that triumph,

The song of them that feast;

And they who, with their Leader,

Have conquered in the fight,

For ever and for ever

Are clad in robes of white.

 

O sweet and blessŤd country,

The home of Godís elect!

O sweet and blessŤd country,

That eager hearts expect!

Jesus, in mercy bring us

To that dear land of rest,

Who art, with God the Father

And Spirit, ever blest.
