Hymn/Song Information

God's temple crowns the holy mount the




God's temple crowns the holy mount,
the Lord there condescends to dwell;
His Zion's gates, in his account,
our Israel's fairest tents excel.
Fame glorious things of thee shall sing,
O city of th' Almighty King!


I'll mention Rahab with due praise,
in Babylon's applause's join,
The fame of Ethiopia raise,
with that of Tyre and Palestine;
And grant that some amongst them born
their age and country did adorn,


But still of Zion I'll aver,
that many such from her proceed;
Th' Almighty shall establish her:
the gen'ral list shall show, when read,
That such a person there was born,
and such did such an age adorn.


He'll Zion find with numbers filled
of such as merit high renown;
For hand and voice musicians skilled,
and (her transcending fame to crown)
Of such she shall successions bring,
like Waters from a living spring.
