Glorious Things of You Are Spoken

Psalm 87

1 He founded Zion on the Holy Mountain - and oh, how God loves his home!
Loves it far better than all
the homes of Jacob put together!
God's hometown - oh!
everyone there is talking about you!

4 I name them off, those among whom I'm famous:
Egypt and Babylon,
also Philistia,
even Tyre, along with Cush.
Word's getting around; they point them out:
"This one was born again here!"
5 The word's getting out on Zion:
"Men and women, right and left,
get born again in her!"
6 God registers their names in his book:
"This one, this one, and this one -
born again, right here."

7 Singers and dancers give credit to Zion:
"All my springs are in you!"
