WILLIAM HORSLEY, 1774-1858
1 I JOYED when to the house of God,
Go up, they said to me.
2 Jerusalem, within thy gates
Our feet shall standing be.
3 Jerusalem, as a city, is
Compactly built together:
4 Unto that place the tribes go up,
The tribes of God go thither,--
A statute this for Israel,--
To God's name thanks to pay.
5 For thrones of judgment, even the thrones
Of David's house there stay.
6 Pray that Jerusalem may have
Peace and felicity:
Let them that love thee and thy peace
Have still prosperity.
7 Therefore I wish that peace may still
Within thy walls remain,
And ever may thy palaces
8 Now, for my friends' and brethren's sakes,
Peace be in thee, I'll say.
9 And for the house of God the Lord,
I'll seek thy good alway.
1 ¶ I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.
2 Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:
4 Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the testimony of Israel, to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.
5 For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
6 ¶ Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
7 Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.
8 For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.
9 Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.
