1. Long upon the mountains, weary,     Have the scatter’d flock been torn; Dark the desert paths, and dreary,     Grievous trials they have borne. 2. Now the gath’ring call is sounding,     Solemn in its warning voice; Union, faith and love abounding,     Bid the little flock rejoice. 3. Now the light of truth they’re seeking,     In its […]

1. We looked up at God’s city, and saw twelve flashing gates,     With three on ev’ry sideā€”an angel at them waits. We all cried out, “The city! It’s coming down from God!”     It came down and it settled where Jesus’ feet had trod. We looked outside the city and glorious houses saw,     Supported on four […]
