Psalm 122

(from Day 27 Morning Prayer)

Laetatus sum

  1. I WAS glad when they said unto me: We will go into the house of the Lord.
  2. Our feet shall stand in thy gates: O Jerusalem.
  3. Jerusalem is built as a city: that is at unity in itself.
  4. For thither the tribes go up, even the tribes of the Lord: to testify unto Israel, to give thanks unto the Name of the Lord.
  5. For there is the seat of judgement: even the seat of the house of David.
  6. O pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
  7. Peace be within thy walls: and plenteousness within thy palaces.
  8. For my brethren and companions' sakes: I will wish thee prosperity.
  9. Yea, because of the house of the Lord our God: I will seek to do thee good.
