	1. How beauteous are at their feet
	Who stand on Zion's hill;
	Who bring salvation on their tongues 
	And words of peace reveal!
	2. How charming is their voice!
	How sweet their tidings are!
	"Zion, behold thy Savior-King;
	He reigns and triumphs here."
	3. How happy are the ears
	That hear this joyful sound
	Which kings and prophets waited for
	And sought, but never found!
	4.How blessed are the eyes 
	That see this heavenly light!
	Prophets and kings desired it long,
	But died without the sight.
	5. The watchmen join their voice
	And tuneful notes employ;
	Jerusalem breaks forth in songs,
	And deserts learn the joy.
	6. The Lord makes bare His arm
	Through all the earth abroad.
	Let every nation now behold
	Their Savior and their God.
