I was glad when they said unto me
Set by Henry Purcell (1658/9 - 1695), "I was glad when they said unto me" [chorus]
[ sung text not yet checked against a primary source]
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.
