SONG NUMBER H130_tune1

 On the mountaintop appearing,
Lo, the sacred herald stands;
Welcome news to Zion bearing,
Zion, long in hostile lands:
Mourning captive, Mourning captive,
God Himself will loose thy bands.
God Himself will loose thy bands.

Has thy night been long and mournful?
All thy friends unfaithful proved?
Have thy foes been proud and scornful,
By thy sighs and tears unmoved?
Cease thy mourning, Cease thy mourning,
Zion still is wellbeloved.
Zion still is wellbeloved.

God, thy God, will now restore thee,
He Himself appears thy friend:
All thy foes shall flee before thee,
Here their boasts and triumphs end.
Great deliverance, Great deliverance,
Zion's King vouchsafes to send.
Zion's King vouchsafes to send.

Peace and joy shall now attend thee,
All thy warfare now is past,
God thy Saviour shall defend the,
Peace and Joy are come at last;
All thy conflicts, All thy conflicts,
End in everlasting rest.
End in everlasting rest.
