Representative Text

1. Jehovah, in the holy mounts,
Has his foundation laid.
2. His love's, to Sion's gates, more than
All Jacob's tents, displayed.
3. Most glorious things are spoke of thee,
And spread thy fame abroad,
O thou Jerusalem; which art
The city of our God.

4. Egypt, and Babylon, I'll name,
(They somewhat have me known,)
Philistia, Tyre, and Cush; lo there
Sprang some of great renown.
5. But this of Sion shall be said,
There many such were born;
And the Most High himself shall her
Establish, and adorn.

6. The Lord, when he makes up the roll,
Shall note, there born was he.
7. There Singers, and sweet harpers, join;
My springs are all in thee.
