Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 O Zion! lovely Zion! thou city of the faithful,
How often with rapture thy praises we sing!
Where millions of redeemed ones are dwelling now in brightness,
And praising forever our Saviour and King.

Refrain:
Where the loud swelling chorus of triumph eternal,
Rolls down from the regions of endless delight,
Where the ransomed are returning with music and rejoicing,
To walk with the Saviour in garments of white.

2 O Zion! lovely Zion! thou carest for the lowly;
Thy banner of mercy still waving we see;
Thy watchmen thou art sending with tidings, joyful tidings,
To gather the lost ones and bring them to thee. [Refrain]

3 O Zion! lovely Zion! O when shall we behold thee,
Thy beauty and splendor for ever to share!
Where loved ones who have entered thy bright and shining portals,
Are waiting and watching to welcome us there. [Refrain]
