Thomas Kelly, 1806
Zion stands by hills surrounded,|
Zion, kept by power divine;
All her foes shall be confounded
Though the world in arms combine.
What a favored lot is thine!
2. Every human tie may perish,
3. Zion's friend in nothing alters,|
Though all others may and do;
His is love that never falters,
Always to its object true.
Crowned with mercies ever new.
4. If thy God should show displeasure,
5. In the furnace God may prove thee,|
Thence to bring thee forth more bright,
But can never cease to love thee;
Thou art precious in His sight.
God is with thee,
God, thine everlasting Light.
