Upon The Hills Of Holiness


Upon the hills of holiness
he his foundation sets.
God, more than Jacob’s dwellings all,
delights in Sion’s gates.

Things glorious are said of thee,
thou city of the Lord.
Rahab and Babel I, to those
that know me, will record:

Behold ev’n Tyrus, and with it
the land of Palestine,
And likewise Ethiopia;
this man was born therein.

And it of Sion shall be said,
This man and that man there
Was born; and he that is most High
himself shall stablish her.

When God the people writes, he’ll count
that this man born was there.
There be that sing and play; and all
my well-springs in thee are.
