In Zion Then I'll Sing




To celebrate your Praise, O Lord,
I will my Heart prepare;
To all the list'ning World Your Word,
Your wond'rous Works declare.
The thought of them shall to my soul
exalted pleasure bring;
Whilst to Your Name, O thou most High,
triumphant praise I sing.

In Zion then I'll sing Your praise,
to all that love Your Name;
And with loud shouts of grateful Joy
Your saving pow'r proclaim.

The Lord for ever lives, who has
his righteous throne prepared;
Impartial Justice to dispense,
to punish or reward.
God is a constant sure defense
against oppressing foes;
As troubles rise, his power and might
protects us through our woes

In Zion then I'll sing Your Praise,
to all that love Your Name;
And with loud shouts of grateful Joy
Your saving pow'r proclaim.

All those who have his Goodness prov'd,
will in his Truth confide;
Whose Mercy ne'er forsook the man
that on his help relied.
Sing Praises therefore to the Lord,
from Zion his abode;
Proclaim his deeds, till all the world,
confess no other God.

In Zion then I'll sing Your Praise,
to all that love Your Name;
And with loud shouts of grateful Joy
Your saving pow'r proclaim.
