Canticum graduum.Lætatus sum in his quæ

Language: Latin

1 [Canticum graduum.] Lætatus sum in his quæ
  dicta sunt mihi: In domum Domini ibimus.
2 Stantes erant pedes nostri in atriis tuis, Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem, quæ ædificatur ut civitas,
  cujus participatio ejus in idipsum.
4 Illuc enim ascenderunt tribus, tribus Domini: testimonium Israël,
  ad confitendum nomini Domini. 
5 Quia illic sederunt sedes in judicio, sedes super domum David.
6 Rogate quæ ad pacem sunt Jerusalem, et abundantia diligentibus te.
7 Fiat pax in virtute tua, et abundantia in turribus tuis.
8 Propter fratres meos et proximos meos, loquebar pacem de te.
9 Propter domum Domini Dei nostri, quæsivi bona tibi.

Psalm 121 (122)

Language: English after the Latin

1 I was glad when they said unto me,
  Let us go into the house of the LORD.
2 Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.
3 Jerusalem is builded as a city
  that is compact together:
4 Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, unto the testimony of Israel,
  to give thanks unto the name of the LORD.
5 For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.
6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
7 Peace be within thy walls, [and] prosperity within thy palaces.
8 For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace [be] within thee.
9 Because of the house of the LORD our God I will seek thy good.
