Holy Hill

Psalm 87             GW

The city the Lord has founded stands on holy mountains.

2 The Lord loves the city of Zion
more than any other place in Jacob.

3 Glorious things are said about you, O city of God!


4 The Lord says, “I will add Egypt and Babylon
as well as Philistia, Tyre, and Sudan
to the list of those who acknowledge me.
Each nation will claim that it was born there.”

5 But it will be said of Zion,
“Every race is born in it.
The Most High will make it secure.”

6 The Lord will record this in the Book of Nations:
“Every race claims that it was born there.”


7 Singers and dancers will sing,
“Zion is the source of all our blessings.”

The Lord has built His glorious city atop the mountains. He has built us a home and every nation, every people will claim they come from that holy city, and it is true.

Life flows from that holy city. All life derives its sustenance from that holy hill because from there the Lord rules. He sends out His life force from His city to all the inhabitants of the earth and everything which has breath feeds, ultimately, on God, Yahweh as the source of life.

Zion is the source of all our blessings.” Everything that is good, every blessing comes down from the Lord. His reign is more like “rain” because He rains down His goodness upon us. Look up. He has glory and righteousness in His hands. Mercy and lovingkindness are His gifts. Everything good comes from above and is for the children of God.

In the end, all will look up and see the glory of God shining from the Holy Mountain. Light beams will radiate love and life from that Holy Hill and every person who has ever lived will know the truth. Love reigns supreme. Love rains.
