I did in heart rejoice to hear the




I did in heart rejoice
to hear the people's voice
In offering so willingly:
For let us up, say they,
And in the Lord's house pray:
Thus spake the folk with amity.


Our feet that wandered wide
Shall in thy gates abide,
O thou Jerusalem full fair;
Which art so seemly set
Much like a city neat,
Whither the people do repair.


The tribes with one accord,
to give thanks to the Lord,
Are thither bent their way to take:
So God before did tell
That there his Israel
Their prayers should together make.


For there are thrones erect,
and that for this respect,
To set forth justice orderly:
Which thrones' right to maintain,
To David's house pertain,
his folk to judge with equity.


To pray let us not cease
for Jerusalem's peace:
Thy friends God keep in amity;
Peace be thy walls about,
And prosper thee throughout
thy palaces continually.


For my friends sake will I
wish that prosperity
May evermore abide in thee:
God's house doth me allure
Thy wealth for to procure
as much as always lies in me.
