In Preparation for the Lord’s Day: Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken


Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken

Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God. Psalm 87:3

image

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.

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!

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

The Hymnal for Worship & Celebration (Word Music).
