Sabbath Rest


Glorious things of thee are spoken,
Zion, city of our God.
God, whose Word cannot be broken,
formed thee for His own abode.
On the Rock of Ages founded,
What can shake thy sure repose?
With salvation's walls surrounded,
Thou mayst smile at all thy foes...

Savior, since of Zion's city
I, through grace, a member am,
Let the world deride or pity,
I will glory in your name.
Fading are the world's best pleasures,
All its boasted pomp and show;
Solid joys and lasting treasures
none but Zion's children know.

- John Newton (1779)
