487. How Beauteous Are Their Feet

1 How beauteous are at their feet
Who stand on Zion's hill;
Who bring salvation on their tongues
And words of peace reveal!

2 How charming is their voice!
How sweet their tidings are!
"Zion, behold thy Savior King;
He reigns and triumphs here."

3 How happy are the ears,
That hear this joyful sound
Which kings and prophets waited for
And sought, but never found!

4 How blessed are the eyes
That see this heav'nly light!
Prophets and kings desired it long,
But died without the sight.

5 The watchmen join their voice
And tuneful notes employ;
Jerusalem breaks forth in songs,
And deserts learn the joy.

6 The Lord makes bare His arm
Through all the earth abroad.
Let every nations now behold
Their Savior and their God.

Amen.
