Zion mourns in fear and anguish
Zion mourns in fear and anguish,
Zion, city of our God.
“Ah,” she says, “how sore I languish,
Bowed beneath the
For my God forsook me quite
And forgot my sorry plight
Mid these troubles now distressing,
Countless woes my soul
“Once,” she mourns, “He promised plainly
That His help should e’er be near;
Yet I now must seek Him vainly
my days of woe and fear.
Will His anger never cease?
Will He not renew His peace?
Will He not show forth compassion

“Let not Satan make thee craven;
He can threaten but not harm.
On My hands thy name is graven,
shield is My strong arm.

I should not remember thee,
Fail to build thy walls, My city,
And look down on thee with
“Ever shall Mine eyes behold thee;
On My bosom thou art laid.
Ever shall My love enfold thee;
Never shalt thou lack
Neither Satan, war, nor stress
Then shall mar thy happiness:
With this blessèd consolation
Be thou firm in
