350. Zion Stands by Hills Surrounded

1 Zion stands by hills surrounded,
Zion, kept by pow'r divine;
all her foes shall be confounded,
though the world in arms combine.
Happy Zion, what a favored lot is thine!
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,
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,
God is with thee - God, thine everlasting light.
