Easy Play Psalm 87
2014 BOOK OF PRAISE OF THE CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCHES
1. Our gracious God has laid secure foundations
and built his city on Mount Zion’s heights.
He loves her gates and he in them delights
more than in all the towns of Jacob’s nation.
2. What glorious things, O city of God’s favour,
are said of you, proclaimed in joyful tone:
“I number Egypt, even Babylon,
among all those who know me as their Saviour.
3. “The Cushite, the Philistine, and the Tyrian
I will now in my register inscribe
and say of every nation, every tribe,
‘This one was born within the walls of Zion.’ ”
4. It rightly will be said of God’s own city,
“This one and that one were in Zion born,
and as the LORD Most High himself has sworn,
he will uphold her in his love and pity.”
5. This will the LORD write in the roll of nations:
“These, born in Zion, all to me belong.”
With joyful music they proclaim in song:
“In Zion are the springs of my salvation.”
