Zion

by Keith Anderson © Andisongs
(7" on Safire Music - JA)

Sceptre shall not depart from Judah
Nor a lawgiver from between his feet
Until Shiloh comes

Come let's establish King David's throne all over the world
His kingdom will never ever end
This royal kingdom is promised to us through David's line
In Him every man will have a friend

Zion will be capital city
Jah will reign in his Majesty
Zion will be capital city
Jah will reign in His Majesty

Come on my people let's reason together
Who are called of Him
We have serious work to do
We must be ready mind, body and soul
For to set the stage
For the King of Kings to reign forever

Zion will be capital city
Jah will reign in his Majesty
Zion will be capital city
Jah will reign in His Majesty

(Break … repeat chorus)

Within this kingdom there's no corruption, no hypocrisies
And thieves can never enter in
There is no racism, no prejudices
And we'll evolve democracy

(Chorus)

(Repeat last verse)

(Bob's ad libs)
Zion is a holy place
Capital city where Jah will reign forever and ever and ever
I will dwell in the house of my Father
Zion, Zion, Zion - holy place, a holy place
It's where I want to be right now
Sitting round my Father's throne
Praying and worshipping, glorifying His Name forever and ever and ever
I can't imagine eternity
But I trust the Father to lead I forever and ever
I will dwell in the house of my Father forever
To behold His beauty...
