Psalm 87

1His foundation is on the holy mountains. •
The Lord loves the gates of Zion
more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

2Glorious things are spoken of you, •
Zion, city of our God.

3I record Egypt and Babylon as those who know me; •
behold Philistia, Tyre and Ethiopia:
in Zion were they born.

4And of Zion it shall be said, ‘Each one was born in her, •
and the Most High himself has established her.’

5The Lord will record as he writes up the peoples, •
‘This one also was born there.’

6And as they dance they shall sing, •
‘All my fresh springs are in you.’

The Lord has chosen Zion for himself.

Lord, as you call us to your city
founded on the rock of ages,
let the springs of living water
rise within us to eternal life;
in Jesus Christ our Lord.
