That City shall full well endure

Representative Text

1 That city shall full well endure,
her ground-work still doth stay
Upon the holy hills full sure,
it can no time decay.

2 God loves the gates of Sion best,
his grace doth there abide,
He loves them more than all the rest
of Jacob's tents beside.

3 Full glorious things reported be
in Sion, and abroad;
Great things, I say, are said of thee,
thou city of our God.

4 On Rahab I will east an eye,
and bear in mind the same;
To Babylon also apply,
and them that know thy Name.

5 Lo, Palestine, and Tyre also,
with Ethiope likewise,
A people old full long ago,
were born and there did rise.

6 Of Sion they shall say abroad,
that divers men of fame
Have there sprung up, and the high God
hath founded fast the same.

7 In their records to them it shall
by him be made appear,
Of Sion, that the chief of all
had his beginning there.

8 The trumpeters wit: such as sing,
therein great plenty be;
My fountains and my pleasant springs
are all contain'd in thee.
