4 The name of Jehovah is worthy of praising,
And so is the Savior an excellent theme;
The elders of Israel a standard are raising,
And call on all nations to come to the same:
These elders go forth and the gospel are preaching,
And all that will hear them, they freely are teaching,
And thus is the vision of Daniel fulfilling:
The stone of the mountain will soon fill the earth.
 
Hymn 4 • Glorious things of thee are spoken
HYMN 4. P. M.
 
1 Glorious things of thee are spoken,
Zion, city of our God!
He whose word cannot be broken,
Chose thee for his own abode:
 
2 On the Rock of Enoch founded;
What can shake thy sure repose?
With salvations’s wall surrounded,
Thou may’st smile on all thy foes.
 
3 See the stream of living waters,
Springing from celestial love,
Well supply thy sons and daughters,
And all fear of drough remove:
