Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

1.	Jerusalem, the golden, 
	With milk and honey blest! 
	Beneath thy contemplation 
	Sink heart and voice oppressed; 
	I know not, O I know not 
	What joys await me there; 
	What radiancy of glory, 
	What bliss beyond compare. 

2.	They stand, those halls of Zion, 
	All jubilant with song, 
	And bright with many angels, 
	And all the martyr throng; 
	The Prince is ever in them, 
	The daylight is serene; 
	The pastures of the blessed 
	Are decked in glorious sheen. 

3.	O sweet and blessed country, 
	Shall I e'er see thy face? 
	O sweet and blessed country, 
	Shall I e'er win thy grace? 
	Exult, O dust and ashes! 
	The Lord shall be thy part; 
	His only, His forever, 
	Thou shalt be, and thou art!
