Hymn 322

Play music

1 On the mountain-top appearing,
Lo, the sacred herald stands;
Welcome news to Zion bearing,
Zion long in hostile lands:
Mourning captive, Mourning captive,
God Himself will loose thy bands.
2 Has thy night been long and mournful?
All thy friends unfaithful proved?
Have thy foes been proud and scornful,
By thy sighs and tears unmoved?
Cease thy mourning,
Cease thy mourning,
Zion still is well-beloved .
3 God, thy God, will now restore thee,
He Himself appears thy friend;
All thy foes shall flee before thee,
Here their boasts and triumph send.
Great deliv 'rance,
Great deliv 'rance,
Zion's King vouchsafes to send.
4 Peace and joy shall now attend thee,
All thy warfare now is past,
God thy Saviour shall defend thee,
Peace and joy are come at last;
All thy conflicts,
All thy conflicts
End in everlasting rest.
