Oh what a beautiful city
Oh what a beautiful city
Oh what a beautiful city
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
There's twelve gates to the city, Hallelujah

Oh what a beautiful city
Oh what a beautiful city
Oh what a beautiful city
Twelve gates to the city, Hallelujah

Who are those children they're dressed in red?
There's twelve gates to the city, Hallelujah
It must be the children that Moses led
There's twelve gates to the city, Hallelujah

Oh what a beautiful city
Oh what a beautiful city
Oh what a beautiful city
Twelve gates to the city, Hallelujah

Oh, when I get to Heaven, gonna sing and shout
There's twelve gates to the city, Hallelujah
Ain't nobody there gonna put me out
There's twelve gates to the city, Hallelujah

Oh what a beautiful city
Oh what a beautiful city
Oh what a beautiful city
Twelve gates to the city, Hallelujah
