Hymn/Song Information

That city shall full well endure her




That city shall full well endure,
her ground-work still doth stay
Upon the holy hills full sure,
it can no time decay.


God loves the gates of Zion best,
his grace doth there abide;
He loves them more than all the rest
of Jacob's tents beside.


Full glorious things reported be
in Zion, and abroad;
Great things, I say, are said of thee,
thou city of our God.


On Rahab I will east an eye,
and bear in mind the same;
To Babylon also apply,
and them that know thy Name.


Lo, Palestine, and Tyre also,
with Ethiope likewise,
A people old full long ago,
were born and there did rise.


Of Zion they shall say abroad,
that divers men of fame
Have there sprung up, and the high God
hath founded fast the same.


In their records to them it shall
by him be made appear,
Of Zion, that the chief of all
had his beginning there.


The trumpeters, with such as sing,
therein great plenty be;
My fountains and my pleasant springs
are all contained in thee.
