5. Saviour, if of Zion’s city
I through grace a member am
Let the world deride or pity,
I will glory in thy name.
Fading is the worldling’s pleasure,
Boasted pomp and empty show
Solid joys and lasting treasure
None but Zion’s children know.
From the hymn “Glorious things of thee are spoken”, by John Newton (1725-1807)
