I mf JERUSALEM the golden,

With milk and honey blest, dim Beneath thy contemplation

Sink heart and voice oppressed : cres I know not, oh, I know not

What joys await us there, f What radiancy of glory,

What light beyond compare !
f They stand, those halls of Sion,

All jubilant 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 blessed

Are decked in glorious sheen.

3 mf There is the throne of David,

And there, from care released, f The song of them that triumph,

The shout of them that feast :
mf And they, who with their Leader

Have conquered in the fight,
For ever and for ever

Are clad in robes of white,

4 P O sweet and blessed country,

The home of God's elect! cres O sweet and blessèd country,

That eager hearts expect !
ť Jesus, in mercy bring us

To that dear land of rest,
mf Who art, with God the Father

And Spirit, ever blest. Amen.

When shall I come and appear before God?" Emf JERUSALEM on high

4 mf The Lord's apostles there
My song and city is,

I might with joy behold,
My home whene'er I die,

The harpers I might hear
The centre of my bliss :

Harping on harps of gold :
Oh, happy place ! 'when shall I be,

f Oh, happy place ? &c. My God, with Thee, to see Thy face? 5 € The bleeding martyrs, they mf There dwells my Lord, my King,

Within those courts are fouiid, P Judged here unfit to live;

cres Clothed in pure array, Eres There angels to Him sing,

Their scars with glory crowned : And lowly homage give :

f Oh, happy place ! &c. f Oh, happy place ! &c.

6 p Ah me! ah me! that I m The patriarchs of old

In Kedar's tents here stay ; 'There from their travels cease ;

No place like that on high ; 'The prophets there behold

cres Lord, thither guide my way : Their longed-for Prince of Peace :

f Oh, happy place ! &c. Amen. f Oh, happy place ! &c. 337
