Psalm 122

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    I joy'd when to the house of God,
       Go up, they said to me.
2    Jerusalem, within thy gates
       our feet shall standing be.
3    Jerus'lem, as a city, is
       compactly built together:
4    Unto that place the tribes go up,
       the tribes of God go thither:

     To Isr'el's testimony, there
       to God's name thanks to pay.
5    For thrones of judgment, ev'n 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 our Lord,
       I'll seek thy good alway.
