The Otterbein Hymnal by Edmund S. Lorenz

441 Zion. 8s, 7s, & 4s.

The Gospel Herald. (926)

On the mountain's top appearing,
Lo! the sacred herald stands,
Welcome news to Zion bearing --
Zion long in hostile lands:
Mourning captive!
God himself shall loose thy bands.

2 Has thy night been long and mournful?
Have thy friends unfaithful proved?
Have thy foes been proud and scornful?
By thy sighs and tears unmoved?
Cease thy mourning;
Zion still is well beloved.

3 God, thy God, will now restore thee;
He himself appears thy Friend;
All thy foes shall flee before thee;
Here their boasts and triumph end;
Great deliverance
Zion's King will surely send.

Thomas Kelly, 1804
