1 My heart was glad to her the welcome sound,
The call to seek Jehovah's house of prayer;
Our feet are standing here on holy ground,
Within thy gates, thou city grand and fair.
2 God's people to Jerusalem repair
To hear His word and worship Him with praise;
The throne of justice stands eternal there,
Messiah's throne through endless length of days.
3 Let earnest prayer be made for Zion's peace;
Thy sons who hold thee dear shall prosper well;
May blessing in thy palaces increase
And peace within thy walls forever dwell.
4 For all my brethren and companions' sakes
My prayer shall be, Let peace in thee abide;
Since God the Lord in thee His dwelling makes,
To thee my love shall never be denied.
