MARCHING TO ZION




Come, we that love the Lord,
And let our joys be known;
|: Join in a song with sweet accord, :|
|: And thus surround the throne. :|

We're marching to Zion,
Beautiful, beautiful Zion;
We're marching upward to Zion,
The beautiful city of God.



Let those that refuse to sing,
Who never knew our God;
|: But children of the heavenly King, :|
|: May speak their joys abroad. :|

We're marching to Zion,
Beautiful, beautiful Zion;
We're marching upward to Zion,
The beautiful city of God.



The God, Who rules on high,
Who all the earth surveys,
|: Who rides upon the stormy sky, :|
|: And calms the roaring seas. :|

We're marching to Zion,
Beautiful, beautiful Zion;
We're marching upward to Zion,
The beautiful city of God.



This awful God is ours,
Our Father and our Love;
|: He will send down his heav'nly powers, :|
|: To carry us above. :|

We're marching to Zion,
Beautiful, beautiful Zion;
We're marching upward to Zion,
The beautiful city of God.



There we shall see His face,
And never, never sin!
|: There, from the rivers of His grace, :|
|: Drink endless pleasures in. :|

We're marching to Zion,
Beautiful, beautiful Zion;
We're marching upward to Zion,
The beautiful city of God.



Yea, and before we rise,
To that immortal state,
|: The thoughts of such amazing bliss, :|
|: Should constant joys create. :|

We're marching to Zion,
Beautiful, beautiful Zion;
We're marching upward to Zion,
The beautiful city of God.



The men of grace have found,
Glory begun below.
|: Celestial fruit on earthly ground :|
|: From faith and hope may grow. :|

We're marching to Zion,
Beautiful, beautiful Zion;
We're marching upward to Zion,
The beautiful city of God.



The hill of Zion yields
A thousand sacred sweets
|: Before we reach the heavenly fields, :|
|: Or walk the golden streets. :|

We're marching to Zion,
Beautiful, beautiful Zion;
We're marching upward to Zion,
The beautiful city of God.



Then let our songs abound,
And every tear be dry;
|: We're marching through Emmanuel's ground, :|
|: To fairer worlds on high. :|

We're marching to Zion,
Beautiful, beautiful Zion;
We're marching upward to Zion,
The beautiful city of God.
