Hymn/Song Information

RETURNING TO ZION




Sing, ye redeeméd of the Lord,
Your great deliverer sing;
Pilgrims, for Zion’s city bound,
Be joyful in your King.


See the fair way his hand hath raised,
How holy and how plain!
Nor shall the simplest travellers err,
Nor ask the track in vain.


No ravening lion shall destroy,
Nor lurking serpent wound;
Pleasure and safety, peace and praise,
Through all the path are found.


A hand divine shall lead you on,
Through all the blissful road,
Till to the sacred mount you rise,
And see your Father, God.


There, garlands of immortal joy
Shall bloom on every head;
While sorrow, sighing, and distress,
Like shadows all are fled.


March on in your redeemer’s strength,
Pursue his footsteps still;
And let the prospect cheer your eye,
While labouring up the hill.


---Alternative verses---


His hand divine shall lead you on,
Through all the blissful road,
Till to the sacred mount you rise,
And see your Father, God.
