1 Not to the terrors of the Lord,
The tempest, fire, and smoke;
Not to the thunder of that word
Which God on Sinai spoke; --
2 But we are come to Zion's hill,
The city of our God,
Where milder words declare His will,
And spread His love abroad.
3 Behold the great, the glorious host
Of angels, clothed in light!
Behold the spirits of the just,
Whose faith is turned to sight!
4 In such society as this,
My weary soul would rest;
For he who dwells where Jesus is
Must be forever blest.
