585. Like Zion's steadfast mount are they

1 Like Zion's steadfast mount are they
Who in the Lord confide;
Secure, immovable they stand,
For ever to abide.

2 As round about Jerusalem
The mountains give defense,
Jehovah is his people's guard,
Their lasting confidence.

3 O thou Jehovah, to the good
Thy goodness now impart,
Thy loving-kindness show to them
That upright are in heart.

4 All those that turn from righteousness
With wayward, wand'ring feet,
With sinners God will lead them forth,
The sinner's doom to meet.

5 O thou who art thy people's shield,
Their helper and their guide,
Upon them let thy grace and peace
For evermore abide.
