Peace Within Your Borders

Sing, Jerusalem, to the Lord on high

Zion, give praise unto your God.

You’ve been made secure and you need not fear

And the children within your walls.

God grants peace within your borders.

You are filled with the finest wheat.


The commands of God go to all the earth

Running swiftly to ev’rywhere.

God gives snow like wool, scatters frost like ash

And spreads hail like crumbs from the air.

Yet cold far beyond our standing

Is relieved by the word of God.


God makes wind to blow so the waters flow

In the nation the word is sown.

There’s no other place has received such grace

Learning clearly the way to go.

Sing praises to God, O Zion.

Lift your voices unto the Lord.
