123. 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.

Chorus:
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 heavenly king,
But children of the heavenly king,
May speak their joys abroad.
May speak their joys abroad.
[Chorus]

3 The hill of Zion yields
A thousand sacred sweets.
Before we reach the heavenly fields,
Before we reach the heavenly fields,
Or walk the golden streets.
Or walk the golden streets.
[Chorus]

4 Then let our songs abound,
And every tear be dry;
We're marching through Immanuel's ground.
We're marching through Immanuel's ground.
To fairer worlds on high.
To fairer worlds on high.
[Chorus]
