Psalm 87
ST. MATTHEW | Common Meter (8,6,8,6)
1650 Scottish Psalter
William Croft, 1678-1727
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.
