KRI 290 Kota Sion Kota Allah
Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken
John Newton
Franz Joseph Haydn
1=F 4/4
Versi Version 1
1
Besar, Perkasa dan mulia, O Sion, kota Allah,
Kau dibangun oleh Dia, sumber firman yang benar,
Tak berguncang, kokoh, teguh, Batu Karang dasarmu,
Kes'lamatan benteng kotamu, musuhmu gentar dan rebah.
2
Umat Tuhan ditudungi, awan pekat dan api,
Tuhan Allah dalam mulia, turun dekat padamu,
B'ri naungan pada siang, b'ri terang pada malam,
Dengan manna Kau s'slamatkan umat-Mu yang berdoa.
3
Umat Tuhan, dibasuh-Nya dalam darah Penebus,
Bernaung di kota Sion, jiwanya sandar Yesus,
Dia jadikan umat kudus, Imamat yang Rajani,
Puji syukur, penuh kasih pada Tuhan diberi.
4
S'bab anugrah Jurus'lamat, 'ku jadi warga surga,
Walau dunia menekanku, 'kan 'ku puji nama-Mu,
Isi dunia dan congkaknya, hilang lenyap dan musnah,
Sukacita, harta kekal, 'ku tau jadi milikku.
Versi Version 2
1
Glorious things of thee are spoken,
Zion, city of our God!
He, 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 mayest smile at all thy foes.
2
Round each habitation hov'ring,
See the cloud and fire appear,
For a glory and a cov'ring,
Showing that the Lord is near;
Thus deriving from our banner
Light by night and shade by day,
Safe they feed upon the manna,
Which He gives them when they pray.
3
Saviour, if of Zion's city,
I through grace a member am,
Let the world deride or pity,
I will glory in Thy name;
Fading is the worldling's pleasure,
All his boasted pomp and show;
Solid joys and lasting treasure,
None but Zion's children know.
