Psalter number 349. Love for the Lordís House - Psalm 122

 

1. My heart was glad to hear the welcome sound,

The call to seek Jehovah's house of prayer;

Our feet are standing here on holy ground,

Within thy gates, thou city grand and fair.

3. Let earnest prayer be made for Zion's peace;

Thy sons who hold thee dear shall prosper well;

May blessing in thy palaces increase

And peace within thy walls forever dwell.

 

4. For all my brethren and companion's sakes

My prayer shall be, Let peace in thee abide;

Since God the Lord in thee His dwelling makes,

To thee my love shall never be denied.
