We Shall Go Up With Joy Lyrics

We shall go up with joy
to the house of our God.

I rejoiced when I heard them say,
Let us go to God’s house.
And now our feet are standing
within your gates, O Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is built as a city
strongly compact.
It is there that the tribes go up,
The tribes of the Lord.

For the peace of Jerusalem pray,
Peace be to your homes!
May peace reign in your walls,
in your palaces, peace.

For love of my brethren and friends
I say “Peace upon you.”
For love of the house of the Lord
I will ask for your good.

Praise the Father, the
Son and Holy Spirit,
Both now and forever.
The God who is, who was,
And is to come, at the end of ages.

We Shall Go Up With Joy Lyrics
