Psalm 87

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    Upon the hills of holiness
       he his foundation sets.
2    God, more than Jacob's dwellings all,
       delights in Sion'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 Sion 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.
