Joy was in my heart, alleluia, when I heard
them say: “Let us go to God’s house.”
And now our feet are standing, alleluia.
Within our gates, O Jerusalem.
Jerusalem, most beautiful city, so strongly compact,
alleluia. On you converge all the tribes of the Lord.
May his peace reign in your walls, happiness
and love in all your homes, alleluia. For you are the
house of the Lord our God.
