I was glad

C Hubert H Parry

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 built as a city that is at unity in 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, vv.1-3. Music: C Hubert H Parry (1848-1918)
