Psalm 87

Words: The Scottish Psalter

Common Metre Tunes

A Psalm or Song for the sons of Korah.

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