He has founded it upon a holy hill :
and the Lord loves the gates of Zion
more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
Glorious things shall be spoken of you :
O Zion, city of our God.
I might speak of my kinsmen in Egypt or in Babylon :
in Philistia, Tyre or Nubia, where each was born.
But of Zion it shall be said :
many were born in her, he that is Most High has established her.
When the Lord draws up the record of the nations :
he shall take note where every man was born.
And the singers and the dancers together :
shall make their song to your name.
