Arise, O glorious Zion

Representative Text

1. Arise, O glorious Zion,
Thou joy of latter days,
Whom countless Saints rely on
To gain a resting place;
Arise and shine in splendor,
Amid the world’s deep night,
For God, thy sure defender,
Is now thy life and light
Arise and shine in splendor,
Amid the world’s deep night;
For God, thy sure defender,
Is now thy life and light.

2. Let faithful Saints be rearing
The city of our Lord,
On mountain tops appearing,
According to His word–
A sought-out habitation,
By men of truth of faith–
A covert of salvation
From ignorance and death.
A sought-out habitation,
By men of truth of faith–
A covert of salvation
From ignorance and death.

3. The Temple long expected
Shall stand on Zion’s hill,
By willing hearts erected,
Who love Jehovah’s will;
Let earth, her wealth bestowing,
Adorn His holy seat,
For nations great shall flow in,
To worship at His feet.
Let earth, her wealth bestowing,
Adorn His holy seat,
For nations great shall flow in,
To worship at His feet.

4. O grant, Eternal Father,
That we may faithful be,
By all the just to gather,
And Thy salvation see!
Then, with the hosts of heaven,
We’ll sing the immortal theme–
To Him be glory given.
Whose blood did us redeem.
Then with the hosts of heaven,
We’ll sing the immortal theme–
To Him be glory given.
Whose blood did us redeem.
