Book of Praise Anglo Genevan Psalter
A Psalm of David.
1. My heart exulted! I was glad
when I heard eager voices call,
“Come, let us go now, one and all,
to Zion, to the house of God.”
Our journey has been richly blest,
for, O Jerusalem, at last
our feet within your gates are standing!
Jerusalem! We stood in awe
when we your strength and beauty saw
while to your citadels ascending.
2. Jerusalem, designed so well,
built as a close-knit unity –
there flock together joyfully
the tribes and clans of Israel.
They to Jerusalem ascend,
according to the LORD’s command,
to thank him with their adoration.
For there are set the royal thrones
of David’s house, and there his sons
with righteous judgments rule the nation.
3. Pray that Jerusalem be blest:
“May peace prevail within your walls,
and safety in your citadels.
May those who love you there find rest.”
Now for the sake of friends and kin,
Jerusalem, I say again:
“May lasting peace be yours to cherish.”
And mindful that the God of grace
has in your midst his dwelling place,
I pray that you may thrive and flourish.

A Psalm of David.
Let Us Go to the House of the Lord
A Song of Ascents. Of David.
I was glad when they said to me,
“Let us go to the house of the LORD!”
2 Our feet have been standing
within your gates, O Jerusalem!
3 Jerusalem—built as a city
that is bound firmly together,
4 to which the tribes go up,
the tribes of the LORD,
as was decreed for1 Israel,
to give thanks to the name of the LORD.
5 There thrones for judgment were set,
the thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
“May they be secure who love you!
7 Peace be within your walls
and security within your towers!”
8 For my brothers and companions’ sake
I will say, “Peace be within you!”
9 For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,
I will seek your good.
