Hymn/Song Information

On the mountain's top appearing Lo the sacred




On the mountainís top appearing,
Lo! the sacred herald stands,
Welcome news to Zion bearing
Zion, long in hostile lands:
Mourning captive,
God Himself shall loose thy bands.


Has Thy night been long and mournful?
Have thy friends unfaithful proved?
Have thy foes been proud and scornful,
By thy sighs and tears unmoved?
Cease thy mourning,
Zion still is well beloved.


God, thy God, will now restore thee;
He Himself appears thy Friend;
All thy foes shall flee before thee;
Here their boasts and triumphs end:
Great deliverance
Zionís King will surely send.


Peace and joy shall now attend thee;
All thy warfare now is past;
God thy Saviour will defend thee;
Victory is thine at last:
All thy conflicts
End in everlasting rest.


---Alternative verses---


Enemies shall no more trouble,ó All thy wrongs shall be redressed; For thy shame thou shalt have double; In thy Maker's favour blest: All thy conflicts End in everlasting rest.
