Zion You Are My Joy

The Journey album logoRecently we took over one of our church houses, set up a band and invited some friends over for a live event. Over the course of the evening we celebrated God’s faithfulness to us by telling stories and singing songs written throughout our history that together express something of the story of our journey. We’re calling this series ‘The Journey‘.

In the early seventies God led us into a baptism of the Holy Spirit, and we found we had a new rich love for one another. The Old Testament word “Zion” speaks of that. Zion is the place God loves to live among His people, wherever they are, whatever their birth-culture or nationality. It’s created wherever people love one another with the love of Jesus.

Lyrics:

Zion, you are my joy, my crown and delight,
Zion you are my life and precious in my sight.
People beloved of God, my heart loves you too,
Blessed be the covenant that binds my soul to you!

Zion I love you, God’s people I love you,
See how my heart is bound to you.

2. Brothers, sisters, you are the ones on whom I depend,
My family, kith and kin; you are my dearest friends.
People beloved of God my heart loves you too,
Blessed be the covenant that binds my soul to you!

Zion I love you, God’s people I love you,
See how my heart is bound to you.

3. The body of Jesus Christ continues his work:
We are his hands, his feet with which to bless the world.
People belov’d of God and church of the Lord,
Blest be the covenant that ransoms you with blood.

Zion I love you, God’s people I love you,
See how my heart is bound to you.
