"Twelve Gates to the City" as written by and Thelma / Davis....
Three gates to the north and three in the south
There's three in the east and three in the west
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

Well, there are so many ways to get us to the city
So many ways to get us to the city
There are so many ways to get us to the city
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

And you can walk right in and you'll be welcome in the city
Walk right in, you'll be welcome in the city
Walk right in, you'll be welcome in the city
Twelve gates to the city, Hallelujah

And you can come from the east to the middle of the city
And you can come from the west to the middle of the city
And we will be all together in the middle of the city
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, twelve gates to the city, Hallelujah
