Text & Translation

Laetatus sum in his quae dicta sunt mihi:
in domum Domini ibimus.
Stantes erant pedes nostri:
in atriis tuis Ierusalem.
Ierusalem quae aedificatur ut civitas:
cuius participatio eius in idipsum.
Illuc enim ascenderunt tribus, tribus Domini:
testimonium Israel
ad confitendum nomini Domini.
Quia illic sederunt sedes in iudicio:
sedes super domum David.
Rogate quae ad pacem sunt Ierusalem:
et abundantia diligentibus te.
Fiat pax in virtute tua:
et abundantia in turribus tuis.
Propter fratres meos et proximos meos:
loquebar pacem de te.
Propter domum Domini Dei nostri:
quaesivi bona tibi.
Gloria Patri et Filio :
et Spiritui Sancto.
Sicut erat in principio et nunc et semper:
et in secula seculorum. Amen.

I rejoiced at the things that were said to me:
We shall go into the house of the Lord.
Our feet were standing:
in thy courts, O Jerusalem.
Jerusalem, which is built as a city:
that is compact together.
For thither did the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord:
the testimony of Israel,
to praise the name of the Lord.
Because their seats have sat in judgment:
seats upon the house of David.
Pray ye for the peace of Jerusalem:
And abundance for them that love thee.
Let peace be in thy strength:
and abundance in thy towers.
For the sake of my brothers and my neighbors:
I spoke peace of thee.
For the sake of the house of the Lord our God:
I have sought good things for thee.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son :
and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, now, and for ever:
world without end. Amen.
