Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

They, like to Sion's sacred mount

They, like to Sion's sacred mount

Author: John Barnard
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. They, like to Sion's sacred mount,
Who in the Lord confide.
Shall stand unmoved, in midst of storms,
And ever safe abide.
2. Lo! how the mountains, compassing,
Jerusalem, ascend;
The Lord, his people, so surrounds,
And ever will defend.

3. The rod of wickedness shall not
On just men's lot remain;
Lest righteous men put forth their hands,
And them with evil stain.
4. To all that are sincerely good,
Thy goodness, Lord, impart;
O may it freely flow to all
That are upright in heart.

5. They that to crooked ways decline,
The Lord shall force them down.
Where wicked men are doomed to go;
But peace shall Israel crown.
