See the Mighty Mount of Zion (Smith)
See the mighty mount of Zion, see the city’s templed hill;
Joseph’s bough and Judah’s lion, gathered by Jehovah’s will.
Now behold, her gates are open; kindreds, tongues and nations flow
As Isaiah once in vision saw the latter-kingdom grow.
Come, perform the work of Zion, strengthen all her stakes abroad,
Stretching far the spacious curtain ‘round the house of Jacob’s God:
Come, O chosen generation, raise the banner high above;
Royal priesthood, holy nation, come, obey the Lord in love.
Once the Lord removed His Zion, Enoch’s hot He led away.
Once a stranger, once a pilgrim, Israel wandered day by day;
See the city of their seeking, built upon foundations sure,
With a cornerstone unyielding: Christ forever shall endure.
Come then, give thine all for Zion, come with joyful heart and mind.
Give the talent long kept hidden; hidden stores of strength we’ll find.
Come, partake of heaven’s manna, come, embrace the mighty throng!
Shout with all thy soul, Hosanna! Sing salvation’s joyful song!
