In the New Jerusalem

When the toils of life are over
And we lay our armor down
And we bid farewell to Earth with all its cares
We shall meet and greet our loved ones
And our Christ we then shall crown
In the New Jerusalem

(Refrain)
There'll be singing, there'll be shouting
When the saints come marching home
In Jerusalem, In Jerusalem
Waving palms with loud Hosannas
As the King shall take His throne
In the New Jerusalem

Though the way is sometimes lonely,
He will hold me with His Hand
Through the testings and the trials I must go
But I'll trust and gladly follow
For sometime, I'll understand
In the New Jerusalem

refrain

When the last goodbye is spoken
And the tear stains wiped away
And our eyes shall catch a glimpse of glory fair
Then with bounding hearts we'll meet Him
Who hath washed our sins away
In the New Jerusalem

refrain

When we joined the ransomed army
In the summerland above
And the face of our dear Savior we behold
We will sing and shout forever
And we'll grow in perfect love
In the New Jerusalem

refrain
