Oh, what a beautiful city
Oh, what a beautiful city
Oh, what a beautiful city
Twelve gates into the city, Hallelu

Three gates into the East
Three gates into the West
Three gates into the North
Three gates into the South
Makin' that twelve gates into the city, Hallelu

But oh, what a beautiful city
Oh, what a beautiful city
Oh, what a beautiful city
Well, twelve gates into the city, Hallelu

See those children yonder
They’re all dressed in red
They must be the children
Children that Moses led
You know that there’s twelve gates into the city, Hallelu

But oh, what a beautiful city
Oh, what a beautiful city
Oh, what a beautiful city
Well, twelve gates into the city, Hallelu

When I get to Heaven
I’m gonna sing and shout
There ain’t nobody up there
Who’s gonna put me out
You know there’s twelve gates into the city, Hallelu

Well oh, what a beautiful city
Oh, what a beautiful city
Oh, what a beautiful city
Well, twelve gates into the city, Hallelu

Hallelu, Hallelu
