I was glad when they said unto me

Note: this setting is made up of several separate texts.

I was glad when they said unto me:
We will go, into the house of the Lord.



For thither the tribes go up, ev'n the tribes of the Lord:
to testify unto Israel, and to give thanks unto the Name of the Lord.
For there is the seat of judgement: even the seat of the house of David.
O pray for the peace of Jerusalem:
they shall prosper that love thee.
Peace be within thy walls:
and plenteousness within thy palaces.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, 
and to the Holy Ghost; 
as it was in the beginning, 
[is]1 now and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen.
