Joy was in my heart, alleluia, when I heard them say:
Let us go to God’s house*2
1. And now my feet are standing, alleluia
Within your gates, O Jerusalem.
2. Jerusalem, most beautiful city, so strongly compact,
Alleluia, on you converge all the tribes of the Lord.
3. 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.
