Psalm 122
Psalm 122
BELGRAVE  |  Bible Passage
Author: Scottish Psalter
Musician: 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
          Prosperity retain.
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.


BIBLE PASSAGE:

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.
