How beauteous are their feet
Who stand on Zion's hill;
Who bring salvation on their tongues,
And words of peace reveal!

How charming is their voice,
So sweet the tidings are:
Zion, behold thy Savior King;
He reigns and triumphs here!

How happy are our ears,
That hear the joyful sound
Which kings and prophets waited for,
And sought, but never found!
