Song of Zion (Psalm of Zion)
Lyrics and Music by: Jennifer Sides


Copyright © 2001, Jennifer Sides

YOU’VE TURNED MY MOURNING INTO DANCING
AND PUT A NEW BEAT IN MY STEP
YOU’VE FILLED MY CUP TO OVERFLOWING
WITH YOUR REIGN OF JOYFULLNESS
NOW THE OIL OF GLADNESS FALLS UPON ME
LIKE THE DEW FROM ON YOUR HOLY HILL
COVERING ME LIKE A GENTLE LAMB
WITH THE BLOOD OF THE GREAT – I AM

NOW I WILL SING A SONG OF ZION
AT THE RIVERS OF GLADNESS AND JOY
BLESSINGS, HONOR AND PRAISES TO THE FATHER
WHOSE LOVE ENDURES FOREVERMORE
I WILL SING A PSALM OF DAVID
AT THE FOOT OF THE CROSS
IN THE TEMPLE OF THE SAINTS
FOR YOU OH LORD ARE A SHIELD ABOUT ME
AND YOUR NAME IS TO BE PRAISED

YOU’VE TURNED MY SORROW INTO LAUGHTER
AND GIVEN ME THE VICTORY
JUST WHEN I THOUGHT I WAS DEFEATED
YOU SAVED ME FROM MY ENEMIES
YOU’RE HEALING MERCY CAME AND CLEANSED ME
AND CAUSED MY BLINDED EYES TO SEE
LIKE MANNA FROM THE SKIES OF HEAVEN
YOU LOVE REIGNS DOWN ON ME
