1.  BLESSED city, Heaven Salem 

     Vision clear of peace and love,

     who of living stones an builded 

     In the height of Heaven above And, 

     with Angel-hosts encircled 

     As a bride to earth dost move.

2.  From celestial realms descending

     Bridal glory round thee shed

     Meet for Him, whose love espoused 

     thee. To thy Lord shalt thou be led

     All thy streets, and all thy bulwarks

     Of pure gold are fashioned.

3.  Bright thy gates of pearl are shinning 

     They are open evermore

     And by virtue of His merits

     Thither faithful souls may soar

     Who for Christ’s dear Name in this world 

     Pain and tribulations bore.

4.  Many a blow and biting sculpture 

     Polished well those stones elect. 

     In their places now compacted,

     By the Heavenly Architect

     Who therewith hath willed for ever 

     That His palace should be decked.

5.  Praise and honour to the Father 

     Praise and honour to the Son,

     Praise and honour to the Spirit 

     Ever Three and ever One,

     One in Might, and One in Glory 

     While Eternal Ages run.  Amen
