Translation by Peter Cornelius (1824 - 1874)

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.

Heil und Freude ward mir verheißen
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Latin 
Heil und Freude ward mir verheißen, 
eingehn werd' ich zum Haus des Herrn; 
deine Schwelle soll ich begrüßen, 
deinen Tempel, Jerusalem!

Hoch und herrlich bist du erbauet, 
alle Völker wandern zu dir; 
Gottes Namen hörst du verkünden, 
hörst ihn preisen, Jerusalem!

Frieden herrsche in deinen Mauern. 
Heil den Hütten, den Hallen Heil! 
Heil den Herzen, die, voll von Liebe, 
treu dir schlagen, Jerusalem!
