Glorious things are sung of Zion

Representative Text

1 Glorious things of sung of Zion,
Enoch's city seen of old,
Where the righteous, being perfect,
Walked with God in streets of godl'
Love and virtue, faith and wisdeom
Grace and gifts were all combined;
As himself each loved his neighbor,
All were of one heart and mind.

2 Then the towers of Zion glittered
Like the sun in yonder sky,
And the wicked stood and trembled,
Filled with wonder and surprise.
Then their faith and works were prefect;
Lo, they followed their great head!
So the city went to heaven,
And the world said, "Zion's fled!"

3 When the Lord returns with Zion,
And they hear the watchmen cry,
Then the saints will be united,
And they'll all see eye to eye;
Then they'll mingle with the angels,
And the Lord will bless his own;
Then the earth will be as heaven;
They shall now as they are know.
