Songs for the Sojourn: Joy in the House of the Lord

June 16, 2019: Trinity Sunday

SCRIPTURE: Psalm 122

A Song of Ascents. Of David.

[1] I was glad when they said to me,

“Let us go to the house of the LORD!”

[2] Our feet have been standing

within your gates, O Jerusalem!

[3] Jerusalem—built as a city

that is bound firmly together,

[4] to which the tribes go up,

the tribes of the LORD,

as was decreed for Israel,

to give thanks to the name of the LORD.

[5] There thrones for judgment were set,

the thrones of the house of David.

[6] Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

“May they be secure who love you!

[7] Peace be within your walls

and security within your towers!”

[8] For my brothers and companions' sake

I will say, “Peace be within you!”

[9] For the sake of the house of the LORD our God,

I will seek your good. (ESV)
