How Filled With Honor Is The Place
Words: Isa 26:1-6 Isaac Watts, "Hymns and Spiritual Songs"
1. How filled with honor is the place Where we adoring stand! Zion, the glory of the earth, And beauty of the land! Bulwarks of mighty grace defend The city where we dwell; The walls, of strong salvation made, Defy the gates of hell.
2. Lift up the message that He gave The kingdom gospel bring Enter, you people who obey The statutes of our King. Here shall you taste God's perfect joy, And live in holy peace, You who have known Jehovah's name, And ventured on his grace.
3. Trust in the Lord, for ever trust, And banish all your fears; Strength in the Lord our God does dwell, Eternal as his years. On Babylon our feet shall tread In that rejoicing hour; The ruins of her walls shall spread A pavement for the poor.
