“Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in His holy mountain.  Beautiful for elevation, the joy of the whole earth, is Mount Zion on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.  God is in her palaces; He is known as her refuge…tell it to the generation following;  For this is God, our God, forever and ever; He will be our guide even to death.”  Psalm 48:1-3, 13b-14
