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

2. How charming is their voice,
How sweet it strikes the ear!
Zion, behold thy Saviour King!
He reigns and triumphs here.

3. The Lord makes bare His arm,
Through all the earth abroad.
Let all the nations now behold
Their Saviour and their God.

4. Ye Angels round the throne,
And saints that dwell below,
Worship the Father, love the Son,
The Spirit's praises show.
