91. Of Zion's Honor Angels Sing

1 Of Zion's honor angels sing!
In Zion Christ alone is King;
In grace He rules with gentle sway
And leads her heav'nward, day by day.

2 For Zion knows no other Lord,
But cleaves to His unerring Word:
To her suffices: Jesus saith!
This is her source and rule of faith.

3 To her He gave the Pow'r of Keys,
To bind and loose as He decrees;
Thro' her declares our sins forgiv'n
That we may be fit heirs of heav'n.

4 Apostles, prophets, He hath sent
To her with Word and Sacrament,
And still sends servants of the Word
To serve the Church and Christ, her Lord.

5 God Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
Adored by all the heav'nly host,
We bow in Zion at Thy throne,--
No other God and Lord we own.
