REFRAIN
O, what a beautiful city (3x)
Twelve gates to the city, hallelujah

Three gates in the east
Three gates in the west
Three gates in the north
Three gates in the south
Thereís twelve gates to the city
Hallelujah                                            


REFRAIN

Our city of vision is alive with green
Where the streets and the air
and the water are clean

Where living is creative and safe and fun
With sustenance and shelter for everyone
And thereís twelve gates to the city
Hallelujah

REFRAIN

Before the New World Order takes
the earth by storm
Weíve got to fill in our New World Order form
As human beings we were born with choice
But to make a difference we must use our voice
And thereís twelve gates to the city
Hallelujah

REFRAIN

Just as we walk through the woods
and praise the song of each bird
In our habitat choir evíry voice shall be heard
So as we plant our vision in this fertile earth
Itís here our garden of hope shall enjoy its birth
And thereís twelve gates to the city
Hallelujah

REFRAIN

Three gates in the east
Three gates in the west
Three gates in the north
Three gates in the south
Thereís twelve gates to the city
Hallelujah

REFRAIN
