Hymn 1:08 (how Honourable Is The Place)

The safety and protection of the church, Isa. 26. 1-6.


How honourable 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 th' assaults of hell.

Lift up the everlasting gates,
The doors wide open fling,
Enter, ye nations, that obey
The statutes of our King.

Here you shall taste unmingled joys,
And live in perfect peace,
You that have known Jehovah's name,
And ventur'd on his grace.

Trust in the Lord, for ever trust,
And banish all your fears;
Strength in the Lord Jehovah dwells,
Eternal as his years.

(What tho' the rebels dwell on high,
His arm shall bring them low,
Low' as the caverns of the grave
Their lofty heads shall bow.)

(On Babylon our feet shall tread
In that rejoicing hour,
The ruins of her walls shall spread
A pavement for the poor.)

Ho, ye that pant for living streams,And pine away and die,Here you may quench your raging thirstWith springs that never dry.Rivers of love and mercy hereIn a rich ocean join;Salvation in abundance flows,Like floods of milk and wine.
