Representative Text

1 O Zion, city of my God!
Thou holy mount of love—
The testimonies of the Word,
Thy grace and beauty prove.

Thy towers they reach within the gate,
Where, seated on His throne,
King Jesus reigns in royal state,
With glory and renown!

2 Thou’rt placed upon foundations sure,
And planted deep in love;
And palaces of love so pure,
From all thy courts above. [Refrain]

3 Thy walls of love are built on high—
And love thy battlements—
Encompassed round on every side,
With love’s environments. [Refrain]

4 Rare gems and untold wealth are found
Within thy gates of peace,
And treasures rich in thee abound,
Thy store shall ne’er decrease. [Refrain]

5 I roam upon these heights sublime,
Whose glory tinted walls
Protect me from the ills of time,
In love’s enchanting halls. [Refrain]
