Representative Text

1 Upon the hills of holiness
he his foundation sets.
2 God, more than Jacob’s dwellings all,
delights in Zion’s gates.
3 Things glorious are said of thee,
thou city of the Lord.
4 Rahab and Babel I as those
that know me will record

Lo, Tyrus, and with it the land
where dwells the Philistine,
and likewise Ethiopia;
this one was born therein.
5 Of Zion shall be said, This man
and that man born was there.
and he that is the Lord most high
himself shall stablish her.

6 When God the people writes, he’ll count
that this man born was there.
7 The singers as the players say,
my well-springs in thee are.
