(A song by David for worship.)

A Song of Praise

It made me glad when they said,
“Let's go to the house
    of the Lord!”
Jerusalem, we are standing
    inside your gates.

Jerusalem, what a strong
    and beautiful city you are!
Every tribe of the Lord
obeys him and comes to you
    to praise his name.
David's royal throne is here
    where justice rules.

Jerusalem, we pray
    that you will have peace,
and that all will go well
    for those who love you.
May there be peace
inside your city walls
    and in your palaces.
Because of my friends
and my relatives,
    I will pray for peace.
And because of the house
of the Lord our God,
    I will work for your good.
