These verses describe the city of Zion (ancient Jerusalem), the destination of the pilgrim road. It is a blessed place. And there is one key factor that differentiates it from any other location on earth: it is God’s “resting place”: where he sits enthroned.
Like the ancient pilgrims who sang these verses, we are also waiting to see God’s kingdom come. And so we wait. And we hope. And in the often confusing in-between we live lives that bring God’s kingdom to this earth as it is in heaven.
It is good to take a moment and thank God for all those who made it possible for us to worship God.
