Psalm 122
Julie Tennent

1I was so glad when they said unto me,
“Come, let’s go to the house of God the Lord.”
2Our feet are standing here within your gates,
O bless’d Jerusalem, of all adored.

3See now Jerusalem, the city great,
Built as a city close – compacted well;
4To which the tribes go up – tribes of the Lord,
To praise His name, as He told Israel.

5There were the thrones for judgment set by God;
The thrones of David who ruled all the land;
6Pray for the peace now of Jerusalem,
“May all who love you prosper well, and stand.”

7“May there be peace within your walls always;
Prosperity within your citadels.”
8So for the sake of brothers and of friends,
And for the sake of all of Israel;

Thus, I will say, “May peace within you reign.”
9And for the sake of the house of the Lord,
I will seek your prosperity and good,
O bless’d Jerusalem, of all adored.
