Psalm 122

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 296 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 122 First Line: How did my heart rejoice to hear Lyrics: How did my heart rejoice to hear My friends devoutly say, "In Zion let us all appear, And keep the solemn day!" I love her gates, I love the road; The church, adorned with grace, Stands like a palace built for God, To show his milder face. Up to her courts with joys unknown The holy tribes repair; The Son of David holds his throne, And sits in judgment there. He hears our praises and complaints; And while his awful voice Divides the sinners from the saints, We tremble and rejoice. Peace be within this sacred place, And joy a constant guest! With holy gifts and heav'nly grace Be her attendants blest! My Soul shall pray for Zion still, While life or breath remains; There my best friends, my kindred dwell, There God my Savior reigns.

Psalm 122

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 6.6.8.6.6.8 Appears in 262 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 122 First Line: How pleased and blest was I Lyrics: How pleased and blest was I To hear the people cry, "Come, let us seek our God today!" Yes, with a cheerful zeal We haste to Zion's hill, And there our vows and honors pay. Zion, thrice happy place, Adorned with wondrous grace, And walls of strength embrace thee round; In thee our tribes appear To pray, and praise, and hear The sacred gospel's joyful sound. There David's greater Son Has fixed his royal throne, He sits for grace and judgment there: He bids the saint be glad, He makes the sinner sad, And humble souls rejoice with fear. May peace attend thy gate, And joy within thee wait To bless the soul of every guest! The man that seeks thy peace, And wishes thine increase, A thousand blessings on him rest! My tongue repeats her vows, "Peace to this sacred house!" For there my friends and kindred dwell; And since my glorious God Makes thee his blest abode, My soul shall ever love thee well.
