Lyrics (Psalm 122:1-2, 3-4, 4-5):
Response: Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord.
I rejoiced because they said to me,
"We will go up to the house of the LORD."
And now we have set foot
within your gates, O Jerusalem. Response
Jerusalem, built as a city
with compact unity.
To it the tribes go up,
the tribes of the LORD. Response
According to the decree for Israel,
to give thanks to the name of the LORD.
In it are set up judgment seats,
seats for the house of David. Response
