Representative Text

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

Refrain:
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]
