The Glorious Light of Zion (Burk) 92

Tune: Benjamin Franklin White, 1844
Alto: Wilson Marion Cooper, 1902
Lyrics: Battle’s Collection of Hymns, 1814
Meter: 7s,6s (7,6,7,6)
The glorious light of Zion
Is spreading far and wide,
And sinners now are coming
Unto the gospel tide.


To see the saints in glory,
And the angels stand inviting,
To welcome sinners home.

The glory of King Jesus
Triumphant doth arise,
And sinners crowd around it
With bitter groans and cries.
