Amity [1]

6, 6, 8, 6, 6, 8

1.

How pleased and blessed was I,

To hear the people cry,

"Come, let us seek our God today;"

Yes with a cheerful zeal,

We haste to Zion's hill,

And there our vows and honors pay,

(Repeat previous line).

2.

Zion, thrice happy place,

Adorned with wondrous grace,

And walls of strength embrace thee round

In thee our tribes appear,

To pray, and praise, and hear

The sacred gospel's joyful sound,

(Repeat previous line).

3.

There David's greater Son

Has fixed his royal throne:

He sits for grace and judgment there

He bids the saints be glad,

He makes the sinner sad,

And humble souls rejoice with fear,

(Repeat previous line).

4.

May peace attend thy gate,

And joy within thee wait,

To bless the soul of every guest;

The man that seeks thy peace,

And wishes thine increase,

A thousand blessings on him rest,

(Repeat previous line)!

5.

My tongue repeats her vows,

"Peace to this sacred house!"

For here my friends and kindred dwell;

And since my glorious God

Makes thee his blest abode,

My soul shall ever love thee well,

(Repeat previous line).
