Representative Text

1 Pray that Jerusalem may have
peace and felicity:
let them that love you and your peace
still have prosperity.

2 Therefore I wish that peace may still
within your walls remain,
and ever may your palaces
prosperity retain.

3 Now, for my friends' and family's sakes,
peace be in you, I'll say.
And for the house of God our Lord
I'll seek your good alway.
