Representative Text

1 His sacred dwelling he doth found
Upon the holy mountains there.
2 To all the tents of Jacob round
The LORD doth Zion's gates prefer.
3 Most glorious things are spoke abroad
Of thee, O city of our GOD. (Selah)

4 I'll Babylon, and Rahab name
Who know me, Ethiopia,
Philistia, Tyre: were born in them
Some justly famous in their day.
5 But ZION fam'd for bringing forth
Many renowned for their worth.

The highest will increase her fame,
Establish her and more adorn.
6 And as the LORD writes ev'ry name,
7 Musicians, singers there abound,
And all my springs in Thee are found.
