Psalm 122:1-3,6,7

I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.

Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.


I was glad when they said unto me, anthem for the Peace of Ryswick and the opening of St Paul’s Cathedral, 2 December 1697, composed by John Blow (1649-1708)
