In praise of God meet duty and delight

Lord of All Good

Those Hating Zion Have Afflicted Me

Those hating Zion have afflicted me
let Israel say, "Yes, even from my youth."
Yet they have not prevailed against God's own,
his covenant ones who worship him in truth.

Erik Routley (PHH 31) wrote CLIFF TOWN in 1943 to the text "Not Only for the Goodly Fruit-Trees Tall" by E. S. Armitage; the tune was first published in Congregational Praise (1951). CLIFF TOWN is named after the Congregational Church at Southend-on-Sea, England. It is fitted with a harmonization suited to four-part singing; the opening phrase returns at the end with a small cadential change. Keep it stately, with two broad beats per measure. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook, 1987
