Cincinnati and the Ohio from Devou Park

How the words of the Psalmist seem to apply to Cincinnati, “As the mountains are around about Jerusalem”, so are the hills roundabout our city.


       Pray for the peace of Jerusalem

       They shall prosper that love thee;

       Peace be within they walls,

       And prosperity within they palace.
