Song background:

 -- The literal trasnaltion of the word "Zion" is 'stronghold'. One of the mountaintops making up today's Jerusalem had a fortress build by those King Daivd defeated to build his capitol. Today the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the stronghold to protect ourselves against the world and all its evils. "Zion" is represented by the "pure in heart" people and church that the Lord holds alofts as a banner to gather all people to Himself.
 -- This was my first real attempt to write a text on the building of Zion and the building up of the Kingdom of God. As I wrote I kept remembering those who said that they kept their face towards Zion in all they did. This is to honor them as much as it is to remind us of our mission.
