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

3 Things glorious are said of thee,
thou city of the Lord.
4 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.

5 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.

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