Representative Text

1 Have you walked about Mount Zion?
’Round her towers great and tall?
Have you seen her mighty bulwarks,
Have you seen her shining walls?

Refrain:
Walk about Mount Zion, brother,
See the Bride in spotless white;
With her name enrolled in heaven,
She is walking in the light.

2 See her palaces so lovely,
Shining forth in splendor bright;
In the City of the ransomed,
Where there never comes the night. [Refrain]

3 Yes, the City hath foundations,
She is built upon the Rock;
She has stood the howling tempest,
And will stand the judgment shock. [Refrain]

4 No storm clouds shall gather o’er it,
Neither cast a shadow there,
Jesus is the Light forever
In that City bright and fair. [Refrain]

5 This fair City is Mount Zion,
’Tis the New Jerusalem;
’Tis the Church of God, He bought her,
She’s the fair Bride of the Lamb. [Refrain]
