The Church Everlasting.
155

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.

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?

Love, which, like the Lord, the giver,

Never fails from age to age.

Round each habitation hovering,

See the cloud and fire appear!

For a glory and a covering,

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.
