Verse 1
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 salvation’s walls surrounded, 
Thou mayst smile at all thy foes. 
Verse 2
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 to assuage? 
Grace which, like the Lord, the giver, 
Never fails from age to age. 
Verse 3
Blest constituents of Zion, 
Washed in the Redeemer’s blood; 
Jesus, whom their souls rely on, 
Makes them kings and priests to God. 
’Tis His love His people raises 
Over self to reign as kings: 
And as priests, His worthy praises, 
Each his thankful offering brings. 
Verse 4
Saviour, if of Zion’s city, 
I through grace a member am, 
Let the world deride or pity, 
I will glory in Thy name; 
Fading is the worldling’s pleasure, 
All his boasted pomp and show; 
Solid joys and lasting treasure 
None but Zion’s children know.
