I was glad when they said unto me,
“Let us go into the house of the Lord.”
Our feet will stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem:
Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord,
To give thanks unto the name of the Lord.
O pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
They shall prosper that love thee.
Peace be within thy walls….
Peace be within thee, and prosperity within thy palaces.
Because of the house of the Lord our God I will seek thy good.
