The city of our God she is, raised up on Judah’s heights
Jerusalem, Jerusalem, so precious in His sight
Such glorious things are said of you He made you His delight.
People from every nation are drawn to Zion’s halls
All seek the Most High’s blessing that rests within her walls
And the glory of this city all her citizens enthrall.
The Lord notes in His records, strike up the royal band
“This one was born in Zion established by My hand”
Singers and dancers celebrate, “Our life comes from this land.”
