Did you realise tweet opening is as the magnificent hymn:'Glorious things of thee are spoken, Zion city of our God.'I'm using New Living along with NIV this time through Psalms.Really enjoying it.


I thought it rang a bell. Almost every Psalm seems to have at least a verse or two in hymns that I know! Chris Tomlin has a song on his most recent album with the line, "All my fountains are in you," from the end of this one.


V 6 The Lord will write in the register of the peoples: ‘This one was born in Zion.’
May our names be written in the register as occupants of the city of God.
