How Glorious Zions Courts Appear
How glorious Zion’s courts appear,
The city of our God!
His throne he hath established here,
Here fixed his loved abode.
Its walls, defended by his grace,
No pow’r shall e’er o’erthrow,
Salvation is its bulwark sure
Against th’ assailing foe.
Lift up the everlasting gates,
The doors wide open fling!
Enter, ye nations, who obey
The statutes of our King!
Trust in the Lord, for ever trust,
And banish all your fears;
Strength in the Lord Jehovah dwells
Eternal as his years.
