1. Beautiful Zion for me Down in the valley reclining, Memories sacred to thee, Close round my heart are entwining, Clasped in the mountain’s embrace, Safe from the spoiler forever, Chased are the tears from thy face, Joy shall depart from thee never. When from thy presence I roam, ’Midst the world’s grandeur I see Naught like my own mountain home, Beautiful Zion for me, Naught like my own mountain home, Beautiful, beautiful Zion for me.
2. Beautiful queen of the west Reigning o’er mountains and valley, Host of the purest and best, Under thy standard shall rally, Robed in the garments of peace, Virtue the crown of the glory, God shall thy kingdom increase, Angels delight in the story. When through the wide world I roam, Naught on the land or the sea Charms like my own mountain home, Beautiful Zion for me, Charms like my own mountain home, Beautiful, beautiful Zion for me.
