Scripture: Psalm 149:2
1 Glorious things of thee are spoken, Zion, city of our God;
He, whose word cannot be broken, Formed thee for his own abode.
On the Rock of Ages founded, What can shake thy sure repose?
With salvation's walls surrounded, Thou may'st smile at all thy foes.
2 See the streams of living waters, Springing from eternal love,
Well supply thy sons and daughters, And all fear of want remove.
Who can faint while such a river Ever flows their thirst to assuage,
Grace,which, like the Lord, the giver, Never fails from age to age?
3 Round each habitation hov'ring, See the cloud and fire appear
For a glory and a cov'ring, Showing that the Lord is near;
Thus deriving from their banner Light by night and shade by day,
Safe they feed upon the manna Which he gives them when they pray.
4 Savior, if of Zion's city I, through grace, a member am,
Let the world deride or pity, I will glory in thy Name.
Fading is the worldlings' pleasure, All his boasted pomp and show;
Solid joys and lasting treasure None but Zion's children know.
