PSALM 87 [8 7 8 7] Sing Psalms
1 On Jerus’lem’s holy mountain
he has founded his abode.
2 More than all of Jacob’s dwellings
Zion’s gates are dear to God.
3 Glorious things of you are spoken,
Zion, city of the LORD:
4 “Many drawn from all the nations
as your people I record.
“I will name as those who know me
Egypt, Tyre and Babylon;
Philistine along with Cushite
I will count as Zion-born.”
5 Yes, it will be said of Zion,
“This and that one here belong;
And on her the Highest’s blessing
will descend, and make her strong.”
6 “Born in Zion,” God will enter
in the peoples’ register.
7 They will sing, as they make music,
“All my fountains are in her.”
