Come, we that love the Lord,
and let our joys be known;
join in a song with sweet accord,
join in a song with sweet accord
and thus surround the throne,
and thus surround the throne.
We're marching to Zion,
beautiful, beautiful Zion;
we're marching upward to Zion,
the beautiful city of God.

Let those refuse to sing
who never knew our God;
but children of the heavenly King,
but children of the heavenly King
may speak their joys abroad,
may speak their joys abroad.

The hill of Zion yields
a thousand sacred sweets
before we reach the heavenly fields,
before we reach the heavenly fields,
or walk the golden streets,
or walk the golden streets.

 We're Marching to Zion

Isaiah 51

3 For the Lord comforts Zion; he comforts all her waste places

and makes her wilderness like Eden, her desert like the garden of the Lord;
joy and gladness will be found in her,  thanksgiving and the voice of song.

4 “Give attention to me, my people,  and give ear to me, my nation;
for a law[a] will go out from me,  and I will set my justice for a light to the peoples.
