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.

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.

Zion, receive thy glorious King

Zion, receive thy glorious King

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Zion receive thy glorious king!
Behold, he comes to thee:
Thy songs of thanks andpraises sing;
He comes to set thee free.

2 Behold he comes from heav'n above,
To thee He doth decend;
He comes with pitty, grace and love,
As brother, lord and friend.

3 Yes, true! he comes in meanest state,
To dwell a while below;
And yet the work is wond'rous great
For him on earth to do.

4 He comes to save all Adam's race,
By shedding of his blood;
And thereby makes them heirs of grace,
And also sons of God.

5 His grace divine, and spirits aid,
Tho' we are prone to ill--
Can soon effect the change we need
To sanctify our will.

6 And thus it is that we receive
The Saviour in our heart;
Then we desire with him to live
And ne'er with him to part.
