Parry, Charles Hubert Hastings: I was glad

I was glad (1902/11)

I was glad when they said unto me,
we will go into the house of the Lord.
Our feet shall stand in thy gates, O Jerusalem.
Jerusalem is builded as a city, that is at unity in itself.
O pray for the peace of Jerusalem,
they shall prosper that love thee.
Peace be within thy walls,
and plenteousness within thy palaces.

Words: Psalm 122 vv. 1–3, 6–7
Music: C. Hubert H. Parry (1848–1918)
