Description

Named for my home neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This tune was performed by The Art Mob in their Winter, 2009 concerts.

Text

Behold, on Zion's heav'nly shore,
A pure and countless band,
Whose conflicts and whose toils are o'er,
In glorious order stand.

From earth's remotest bounds they came,
From tribulations great,
And, through the victories of the Lamb,
Have reach’d the heav’nly state.
