Psalm 87

(from Day 17 Morning Prayer)

Fundamenta ejus

  1. HER foundations are upon the holy hills: the Lord loveth the gates of Sion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.
  2. Very excellent things are spoken of thee: thou city of God.
  3. I will think upon Rahab and Babylon: with them that know me.
  4. Behold ye the Philistines also: and they of Tyre, with the Morians; lo, there was he born.
  5. And of Sion it shall be reported that he was born in her: and the most High shall stablish her.
  6. The Lord shall rehearse it when he writeth up the people: that he was born there.
  7. The singers also and trumpeters shall he rehearse: All my fresh springs shall be in thee.
