Hymn/Song Information

Zion stands with hills surrounded Zion




Zion stands by hills surrounded,
Zion, kept by power divine;
All her foes shall be confounded,
Though the world in arms combine;
|:Happy Zion,
what a favored lot is thine!:|


Every human tie may perish;
Friend to friend unfaithful prove;
Mothers cease their own to cherish;
Heav’n and earth at last remove;
|:But no changes
can attend Jehovah’s love:|


Zion's friend in nothing alters,
Though all others may and do;
His is love that never falters,
Always to its object true.
|:Happy Zion!
Crowned with mercies ever new.:|


If thy God should show displeasure,
'Tis to save and not destroy;
If He punish, 'tis in measure;
'Tis to rid thee of alloy.
|:Be thou patient;
Soon thy grief shall turn to joy.:|


In the furnace God may prove thee,
Thence to bring thee forth more bright,
But can never cease to love thee;
Thou art precious in His sight;
|:God is with thee—
God, thine everlasting Light,:|


---Alternative verses---


Zion stands with hills surrounded,
Zion, kept by power divine;
All her foes shall be confounded,
Though the world in arms combine;
|:Happy Zion,
what a favored lot is thine!:|
