135. Come, We That Love the Lord (We're Marching to Zion)

1 Come, we that love the Lord,
and let our joys be known;
join in a song with sweet accord,
join in a song with sweet accord
and thus surround the throne,
and thus surround the throne.

[Refrain]
We're marching to Zion,
beautiful, beautiful Zion:
we're marching upward to Zion,
the beautiful city of God.

2 Let those refuse to sing
who never knew our God;
but children of the heav'nly King,
but children of the heav'nly King
may speak their joys abroad,
may speak their joys abroad. [Refrain]

3 The hill of Zion yields
a thousand sacred sweets
before we reach the heav'nly fields,
before we reach the heav'nly fields
or walk the golden streets,
or walk the golden streets. [Refrain]

4 Then let our songs abound,
and ev'ry tear be dry;
we're marching through Emmanuel's ground,
we're marching through Emmanuel's ground
to fairer worlds on high,
to fairer worlds on high. [Refrain]
