Hymn/Song Information

How glorious Zion's courts appear The




How glorious Zion’s
courts appear,
The city of our God!
His throne He hath
established here
Here fixed His loved abode.


Its wall, defended by His grace
No power shall e’er o’erthrow,
Salvation is its bulwark sure
Against th’ assailing foe.


Lift up the everlasting gates,
The doors wide open fling;
Enter, ye nations, who obey
The statutes of our King.


Here shall ye taste
unmingled joys,
And dwell in perfect peace,
Ye, who have known
Jehovah’s Name,
And trusted in His grace.

[Here those whose minds
are stayed on Thee
Are kept in perfect peace:
They who have known
Jehovah’s name
And trusted in His grace.]


Trust in the Lord, forever trust,
And banish all your fears;
Strength in the
Lord Jehovah dwells
Eternal as His years.


What though the wicked
dwell on high,
His arm shall bring them low;
Low as the caverns
of the grave
Their lofty heads shall bow.


Along the dust
shall then be spread
Their towers,
that brave the skies:
On them the needy’s
feet shall tread,
And on their ruins rise.
