Author: D. S. Warner Appears in 6 hymnals Scripture: Jeremiah 31:12 First Line: Beautiful, holy Zion Refrain First Line: Coming, coming Lyrics: 1 Beautiful, holy Zion,
Oh, mountain of glory, divine,
We come to thy peaceful summit,
Where heavenly songs ever chime.
Zion we come to thee,
Coming with joy to thee.
2 Welcome the joyful tidings,
Of Zion, the mountain of love,
’Tis freedom from Babel bondage;
And, coming, that freedom we prove.
3 Out of the shadows hanging,
Dark, over the valley of fear,
We mount up to Zion’s glory,
As crystal, eternally clear.
4 Wonderful, happy Zion,
We stand on thy summit, so free;
While, joyfully singing, upward,
The ransomed are coming to thee.
5 Beautiful, peaceful Zion,
We’ve heard of thy wonders of old:
And, out of the ages rising,
We shine in thy city of gold. Used With Tune: [Beautiful, holy Zion]
