474. Zion Stands by Hills Surrounded

1 Zion stands by hills surrounded,
Zion, kept by pow'r divine;
All her foes shall be confounded,
Tho' the world in arms combine;
Happy Zion,
What a favored lot is thine!

2 Ev'ry human tie may perish,
Friend to friend unfaithful prove,
Mothers cease their own to cherish,
Heav'n and earth at last remove;
But no changes
Can attend Jehovah’s love.

3 In the furnace God may prove thee,
Thence to bring thee forth more bright,
But can never cease to love thee;
Thou art precious in His sight.
God is with thee,
God, thine everlasting Light.

Amen.
