Psalm 87

Words: The Bay Psalm Book

Short Metre Tunes

A psalm or song for the sons of Korah
  1     Among the holy hills
        is his foundation.
  2  More than all Jacobs tents, the Lord
        loves the gates of Zion.
  3     Things glorious spoken are
        o'God's city, of thee.        (Selah)
  4  I'll mention Rahab, & Babel,
        to them that do know me,
        Behold Philistia,
        Tyrus city likewise
     with Ethiopia; that this man
        by birth did thence arise.
 5      Also it shall be said,
        of Zion that borne there
     this & that man was, & the high'st
        himself shall stablish her.
  6     Jehovah He shall count,
        ev'n at that time when as,
     the people he doth number up,
        that there this man born was.   (Selah)
  7     Both those that singers are
        as also there shall be
     those that on instruments do play:
        all my springs are in thee.
