HYMN 467

H.C. 398 t.H.C 120 8s. 7s (FE 492) 
“Glorious things are spoken of Thee"
 - Ps. 87:3

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 salvauon‘s walls surrounded 

     Thou may’st smile at all thy foes.

2.  See, the steams 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.  Saviour, if in Zion’s city

     Thou enrol my humble name 

     Let the world deride or pity

     I will glory in the shame

     Fading is the sinner’s pleasure

     All his boosted pomp and show 

     Solid joys and lasting treasure 

     None but Zion's children know.  Amen
