Scottish Psalter: Psalm 87

Psalm 87: Upon the hills of holiness

A Psalm or Song for the sons of Korah.

Meter: C.M. (8,6,8,6)

1 Upon the hills of holiness he his foundation sets. 2 God, more than Jacob’s dwellings all, delights in Sion’s gates.

3 Things glorious are said of thee, thou city of the Lord. 4 Rahab and Babel I, to those that know me, will record:

Behold ev’n Tyrus, and with it the land of Palestine, And likewise Ethiopia; this man was born therein.

5 And it of Sion shall be said, This man and that man there Was born; and he that is most High himself shall stablish her.

6 When God the people writes, he’ll count that this man born was there. 7 There be that sing and play; and all my well-springs in thee are.
