Psalter manuscript

Psalm 87: His foundation is in the holy place


His foundation is in the holy place
Of Mount Zion’s wondrous heights.
Jacob’s dwellings are not to be compared
With those precious city gates.
Glorious things are prophesied of you,
Some day, shortly, they will all come true:
Babylon and Philistia too
Will be changed and born again!

Every tribe and tongue will together come
And acknowledge God’s stout horn;
In that solemn day they’ll unite to say,
‘This and that one there were born’.
God Himself will strong establish her,
Full accounting in His register
All the saints who shall be raised in her
Will of springs of blessing sing!
