  • We're Marching to Zion #222:51

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. 

Isaiah 51

3 For the Lord shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord;

joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.
4 Hearken unto me, my people; and give ear unto me, O my nation: for a law shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people.

Worship Suggestion:
The sound file is looped.
1. As the song plays the first time, (During Verse 1) make remarks about God's message and promise to His people. Emphasize that we shall one day dwell in the beautiful city of Zion. We need to remain steadfast and faithful until that glorious day.
2. As the song continues, (During Verses 2 - 3) Read slowly the scripture passage from the book of Isaiah 51: 1 - 4, 11, 15, 16. Let the song end. 
3. When the song restarts, sing Verses 1 - 3 together.
4. Prayer and Meditation.

We're Marching to Zion

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. (Refrain)
