Inspiring Lyrics–"We're Marching to Zion"

puppyfootPuppyfoot on 08/04/2009

trivia quiz Isaac Watts wrote the lyrics to the Christian hymn "We're Marching to Zion," originally titled "Heavenly Joy on Earth." It was first published in Watts' hymnal, ‘Hymns and Spiritual Songs of 1707.' Many speculate that Watts wrote the hymn in response to some people's criticism of singing hymns written by "humans"--as opposed to singing only psalms set to music-- during church services. Some people refused to sing the hymns at all. The words "Let those refuse to sing who never knew our God; but children of the heavenly King may speak their joys abroad" seem particularly aimed at these people.

Robert Lowry wrote the music for this hymn in 1867. The version used here is from the 1940 edition of ‘The Broadman Hymnal.'

As always, your task is to fill in the blanks to complete the excerpted lyrics for this song.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE: I realize that many hymns have different versions of lyrics because they have been revised over the years. If you feel that any of the "wrong" answers on this quiz are actually correct and can send me information verifying this, I will gladly consider changing the answers. Thanks for your help.

The Broadman Hymnal, B.B. McKinney, Music Editor. Broadman Press: Nashville, TN, Copyright 1940.
