BUILDING UP ZION




Look with an eye of pity down,
Great God, from thine exalted throne;
‘Tis for thy church we offer prayer,
The object of thy tenderest care.


It is a building thou hast raised,
By thy strong hand, thy name be praised;
But unsupported, lo it falls,
Repair its ruins, build its walls.


it needs defence and fresh supplies,
Has many wants and enemies;
Oh let thine arm encompass round,
Safety and comfort there be found.


Should earth and hell her strength assail,
Let neither earth nor hell prevail;
Thou art its founder and its Lord,
Thy gracious presence there afford.
