I was glad

I was glad when they said unto me,
We will go into the house of the Lord.

Our feet shall stand in thy gates,
O Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is builded as a city,
That is at unity with itself:

O pray for the peace of Jerusalem,
They shall prosper that love thee.

Peace be within thy walls,
And plenteousness within thy palaces.

–Words: Psalm 122;
–Music: C. Hubert H. Parry (1848-1918)
