HYMN 10

298

S. M.

The blessedness of gospel times. Isa. 52:2,7-10; Mt. 13:16,17.

How beauteous are their feet

Who stand on Zion's hill!

Who bring salvation on their tongues,

And words of peace reveal!

How charming is their voice!

How sweet the tidings are!

"Zion, behold thy Savior King;

He reigns and triumphs here."

How happy are our ears

That hear this joyful sound,

Which kings and prophets waited for,

And sought, but never found!

How blessed are our eyes

That see this heav'nly light

Prophets and kings desired it long,

But died without the sight.

The watchmen join their voice,

And tuneful notes employ;

Jerusalem breaks forth in songs,

And deserts learn the joy.

The Lord makes bare his arm

Through all the earth abroad;

Let every nation now behold

Their Savior and their God!
