1 The LORD his sacred house doth on
the holy mountains found;
2 The gates of Zion loves more than,
all Jacob's dwellings round.
3 Exceeding great and glorious things,
are spoken all abroad,
Concerning thee, O thou the seat,
the city of our GOD. (Selah)
4 In those who know me I will name
Tyre, Rahab, Babylon,
In Ethiopia, Palestine,
were born some of renown;
5 But this of Zion shall be said,
there many such are born;
And the most High himself will her,
establish and adorn.
6 Yea when the LORD enrolls their names
who His own people are,
To Zion's honour He will say,
'THIS MAN WAS BORN IN HER.' (Selah)
7 Both those who sing and those who play
on musick there shall be:
Yea all my springs of life and grace
and comfort are in Thee.
