Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: I love the shining city Where war and sorrow cease, Where reigns the God of heaven, Where dwells the Prince of peace.
Verse 2: I’ve trusted in the promise Of His eternal grace, The Sabbath rest awaits me Within His dwelling place.
Verse 3: And to that weight of glory, What suff’ring can compare? So here I’ll make the journey; My Lord will claim me there.
Chorus: O how I long to join Him, And never to depart, I know the ways to Zion; I keep them in my heart.
