15796. Zion, From Thee Is Sounded Forth

1 Zion, from thee is sounded forth,
The word of an almighty God,
To tell the riches of His grace,
And spread His glories all abroad.

2 In terms expressive to unfold
The sinner’s doom, and sin’s desert,
The cross of Jesus to reveal,
And send conviction to the heart.

3 Unhappy they, estranged from God,
Whom neither wrath nor grace can move,
Who on the Gospel cast contempt,
And still despise a Savior’s love.

4 But to the scepter they must yield,
Or bow beneath resistless power;
Oh may they tremble at Thy word,
And saints with grateful hearts adore.
