O walk about, walk about Zion

1
O walk about, walk about Zion,
Go round about her in love.
O walk about, walk about Zion
And count the towers thereof.
2
O set your heart on her bulwarks,
O set your heart on her walls,
O set your heart on her bulwarks,
Consider her palaces.
3
In elevation how beauteous,
The joy of all the earth!
In elevation how beauteous
Is Zion, that city of worth!
4
O there is a river in Zion
That flows so deep and so broad.
O how the streams of that river
Make glad the city of God!
5
Praise waiteth for Thee, Lord, in Zion,
Praise waiteth, O God, for Thee,
Praise waiteth for Thee, Lord, in Zion,
For Zion is filled with Thee.
6
How great the Lord is in Zion,
How greatly to be praised,
How great He is in that city
Which over the earth is raised.
7
O bless the Lord out of Zion,
O let His praises swell,
O bless the Lord out of Zion,
Ye who in Jerusalem dwell.
8
The Lord bless thee out of Zion,
The Lord bless thee o'er and o'er!
The Lord bless thee out of Zion
With life for evermore!
9
Behold how good and how pleasant
With all the brethren to be!
Behold how good and how pleasant
To dwell in unity!
10
O tell it to all generations,
O tell it to all who will come,
O tell it to all generations,
The Spirit and Bride say, "Come!"

Behold how good and how pleasant

With all the brethren to be!

To dwell in unity! ~
