The Holy City 
Recorded by Doyle Lawson
Written by Eddie Burns and S. Newkirk

There’s a city holy city where the streets are paved with gold
D7 G7
And its walls are made of jasper and its beauty can’t be told
It’s the home of the redeemed ones who have known God’s saving grace
G7 C
What a happy glad reunion when we meet in that place

F G7
John saw that city and the river flowing free
C F C G7 C
Saw the trees transplanted in that city built for you and me

In that city holy city where no tears can dim the eyes
D7 G7
There will be no disappointment there will be no sacrifice
All the saints then will be holy and will live in one accord
G7 C
There’ll be shouting there’ll be singing when we meet with the Lord

Repeat #2

Over in that holy city we will need no sun to shine
D7 G7
We will walk the streets of glory in that happy nest of love
It’s a place of wondrous beauty where the saints will never war
G7 C
We will sing glad hallelujah in that home of the soul

Repeat #2 x2

G7 C
In that city built for you and me
