Story behind the song
Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,
which will never be moved, but stands for ever.
As the hills stand around Jerusalem,
so the Lord stands around his people
from this time forth for evermore.
In the Lord they have someone to rely on
who is faithful and sure, and stands for ever.
They have no other powers, nor use for them;
they have no need of towers or steeples;
in him protected and secure.
The wicked will never hold sway
in the land allotted to the just.
The righteous will never be forced
into evil instead of trust.
The wicked will soon pass away
from the land allotted to the just.
The righteous are always resourced
by the Lord who respects their trust.
Repeat VERSE 1.
