Glorious things of Thee are Spoken


Glorious things of thee are spoken,
Zion, city of our God!
He, Whose Word cannot be broken,
Formed thee for His own abode.
On the Rock of Ages founded,
What can shake thy sure repose?
With salvationís walls surrounded,
Thou mayíst smile at all thy foes.

See! the streams of living waters,
Springing from eternal love;
Well supply thy sons and daughters,
And all fear of want remove:
Who can faint while such a river
Ever flows their thirst tíassuage?
Grace, which like the Lord, the Giver,
Never fails from age to age.

Round each habitation hovering,
See the cloud and fire appear!
For a glory and a covíring
Showing that the Lord is near.
Thus deriving from our banner
Light by night and shade by day;
Safe they feed upon the manna
Which He gives them when they pray.

Blest inhabitants of Zion,
Washed in the Redeemerís blood!
Jesus, Whom their souls rely on,
Makes them kings and priests to God.
íTis His love His people raises,
Over self to reign as kings,
And as priests, His solemn praises
Each for a thank offering brings.

Savior, if of Zionís city,
I through grace a member am,
Let the world deride or pity,
I will glory in Thy Name.
Fading is the worldlingís pleasure,
All his boasted pomp and show;
Solid joys and lasting treasure
None but Zionís children know.
