His Sacred Dwelling He Doth Found


His sacred dwelling he doth found
Upon the holy mountains there.
To all the tents of Jacob round
The LORD doth Zion’s gates prefer.
Most glorious things are spoke abroad
Of thee, O city of our GOD. (Selah)

I’ll Babylon, and Rahab name
Who know me, Ethiopia,
Philistia, Tyre: were born in them
Some justly famous in their day.
But ZION fam’d for bringing forth
Many renowned for their worth.

The highest will increase her fame,
Establish her and more adorn.
And as the LORD writes ev’ry name,
He’ll note – THERE SUCH A ONE WAS BORN
Musicians, singers there abound,
And all my springs in Thee are found.
