ON the mountain top appearing,

Lo! the sacred herald stands;

Joyful news to Zion bearing,

Zion long in hostile lands;

Mourning captive,

God himself shall loose thy bands.

Hast 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-belov'd.

God, thy God will soon restore;

He himself appears thy friend:

All thy foes shall flee before thee;

Here their boasted triumphs end;

Great deliverance,

Zion's King will surely send.

Peace and joy shall now attend thee,

All thy warfare now be past;

God thy Saviour will defend thee

Victory is thine at last:

All thy conflicts

End in an eternal rest.
