Zion, blest Zion, is my home,
Cheerfully marching with the throng,
Marching to Zion, Zion, Zion,
Zion, city of our God;
Beautiful Zion, glorious city,
Blessèd city of our God.
Beautiful Zion, Zion, Zion,
Zion, Zion is my home.

Happy home above.
Beautiful Zion, glorious city,
Blessèd city of our God.
Beautiful Zion, Zion, Zion,

Zion the city of the blest,
Where wayworn pilgrims find sweet rest;
Beautiful Zion, Zion, Zion,
Zion, city far above;
The only way to that bright city,
Is thru Jesus’ precious blood;
Beautiful Zion, Zion, Zion, Zion
Zion is my home.
Zion, Zion, Zion, Zion,
City of our God.
Zion, Zion, Zion, Zion,
Happy home above.
The only way to that bright city,
Is thru Jesus’ precious blood;
Beautiful Zion, Zion, Zion, Zion
Zion is my home.
