Zion, Founded on the Mountains

  1. Zion, founded on the mountains,
    God, your builder, loves you well;
    glorious things of you are spoken,
    he delights in you to dwell;
    God’s own city, God’s own city, God’s own city,
    who can all your glory tell?
  2. I will name as those who know me
    Egypt, Tyre, and Babylon;
    they will say of Cush and Rahab,
    “This one was in Zion born.”
    God Almighty, God Almighty, God Almighty
    shall establish Zion strong.
  3. When the LORD shall count the nations,
    sons and daughters he shall see,
    born to endless life in Zion,
    and their joyful song shall be:
    “Blessed Zion, blessed Zion, blessed Zion,
    all our fountains are in thee.”
