Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

979. Beautiful Zion

1 Beautiful, peaceful Zion,
We’ve heard of thy wonders of old;
And out of the ages rising,
The city of light we behold.

Refrain:
Coming, coming,
Zion we come to thee;
Coming, coming,
Coming with joy to thee.

2 Out of the shadows hanging
Dark over the valley of fear,
We mount up to Zion’s glory,
As crystal, eternally clear. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful, holy Zion,
Oh, mountain of glory divine,
We come to thy peaceful summit,
Where heavenly songs ever chime. [Refrain]

4 Wonderful, happy Zion,
We stand on thy summit so free,
While joyfully singing, upward,
The ransomed are coming to thee. [Refrain]

5 Welcome the joyful tidings
Of Zion, the mountain of love;
’Tis freedom from Babel bondage,
And coming, that freedom we prove. [Refrain]
