1 How glorious Zion's courts appear,
The city of our God!
His throne he hath established here,
Here fixed his loved abode.
2 Its walls, defended by his grace,
No pow'r shall e'er o'erthrow,
Salvation is its bulwark sure
Against th' assailing foe.
3 Lift up the everlasting gates,
The doors wide open fling!
Enter, ye nations, who obey
The statutes of our King!
4 Trust in the Lord, for ever trust,
And banish all your fears;
Strength in the Lord Jehovah dwells
Eternal as his years.
