Lyrics:
A Song of Ascents, by David.
I rejoiced when they said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord.’
Our feet are standing within your gates, O Jerusalem;
The built up Jerusalem is like a city that is united together.
For there the tribes ascended, the tribes of God,
a testimony for Israel, to give thanks to the name of Hashem.
For there sat thrones of judgment, thrones for the house of David.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; those who love you will be serene.
May there be peace within your walls, and serenity within your palaces.
For the sake of my brothers and friends, I will speak of peace in your midst.
For the sake of the house of the Lord, I will seek good for you.
