1 Where shall we go to seek and find
An habitation for our GOD,
A dwelling for th' eternal Mind
Among the sons of flesh and blood!
2 The GOD of Jacob chose the hill
Of Zion for his ancient rest;
And Zion is his dwelling still,
His church is with his presence blest.
3 Here I will fix my gracious throne,
And reign forever, saith the Lord;
Here shall my power and love be known,
And blessings shall attend my word.
4 Here will I meet the hungry poor,
And fill their souls with living bread;
Sinners that wait before my door
With sweet provisions shall be fed.
5 Girded with truth, and cloth'd with grace
My priests, my ministers shall shine;
Not Aaron in his costly dress
Appears so glorious and divine.
6 The saints, unable to contain
Their inward joys, shall shout and sing,
The son of David here shall reign,
And Zion triumph in her King.
7 [Jesus shall see a numerous seed
Born here t' uphold his glorious name;
His crown shall flourish on his head,
While all his foes are cloth'd with shame.
