Looking for my father in-laws favorite song - walls are made of jasper and the streets are pure gold

In the chorus this song says "walls are made of jasper and the streets are pure gold. It also says something about a rose. It has been about 17 years since we have had this song in our song book.

Hi Kimberley,
I have combed through dozens of hymns searching for the combined words you posted.
What wonderful hymns! A few of them are already in our archives.
Needless to say, I am inspired and looking forward to the rewards of Heaven
but discouraged I can't identify your father-in-law's favorite song
In your post, what song book are you referring to?
Can you give us anymore clues?

I am not sure if this is the song you are referencing, but I recall a song from the late 60's/early 70's and here are some of the lyrics

"I had a dream/ Last night/ About a city/ So bright/ The walls were made of jasper/ And the streets were paved with gold

A river/ Flowed soft and sweet/ Angels kneeled/ At God's feet/ I tell you/ Heaven is a beautiful place/ I know/ I know

Revelations has told/ About a city of pure gold/ We'll be/ Free from sin/ When the saints go/ Marching in

To the three gates/ In the north . . . " and so, on . .
