13 Thou shalt arise, and mercy yet Thou to mount Sion shalt extend: Her time for favour which was set, Behold, is now come to an end. 14 Thy saints take pleasure in her stones, Her very dust to them is dear. 15 All heathen lands and kingly thrones On earth thy glorious name shall fear. 16 God in his glory shall appear, When Sion he builds and repairs. 17 He shall regard and lend his ear Unto the needy's humble pray'rs: Th' afflicted's pray'r he will not scorn. 18 All times this shall be on record: And generations yet unborn Shall praise and magnify the Lord. 19 He from his holy place look'd down, The earth he view'd from heav'n on high; 20 To hear the pris'ner's mourning groan, And free them that are doom'd to die; 21 That Sion, and Jerus'lem too, His name and praise may well record, 22 When people and the kingdoms do Assemble all to praise the Lord.
