303. How beauteous are their feet

1 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!
How sweet the tidings are!
"Zion, behold thy Saviour King;
He reigns and triumphs here."

2 How happy are our ears
That hear this joyful sound,
Which kings and prophets waited for,
And sought, but never found!
The Lord makes bare His arm
Through all the earth abroad;
Let all the nations now behold
Their Saviour and their God.
