Representative Text

1 I Joy'd in them that said to me,
Let's at the Lord's house meet.
2 O thou Jerusalem within
Thy gates shall stand our feet.
3 Jerusalem is builded up
Into a city frame:
Both beautiful and uniform,
And compact is the same

4 Whither the tribes the tribes of Jah,
To Isra'ls witness go;
That they unto Jehovah's name
Their thankfulness may show.
5 Because the thrones of judgment there
Established therein:
The thrones that do unto the house
Of David appertain.

6 Pray for Jerusalem her peace,
They prosper that love thee.
7 Peace in thy walls, thy palaces
In them let safety be.
8 Both for my brethren and my friends,
Peace be in thee say I.
9 I'll for our God Jehovah's house
Seek thy prosperity.
