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]
