PSALM 87
Common Meter: 8,6,8,6
A Psalm or Song for the sons of Korah.
1Upon the hills of holiness
he his foundation sets.
2God, more than Jacob's dwellings all,
delights in Sion's gates.
3Things glorious are said of thee,
thou city of the Lord.
4Rahab 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.
5And it of Sion shall be said,
This man and that man there
Was born; and he that is most High
himself shall stablish her.
6When God the people writes, he'll count
that this man born was there.
7There be that sing and play; and all
my well-springs in thee are.
