Holy City 101b

Tune: Benjamin Franklin White, 1844
Alto: Wilson Marion Cooper, 1902
Lyrics: Mead’s General Selection, 1807
Meter: 7s,6s Double (7,6,7,6,7,6,7,6)
There is a holy city,
A happy world above,
Beyond the starry regions,
Built by the God of love.
An everlasting temple,
And saints array’d in white;
They serve their great Redeemer,
And dwell with Him in light.
