Blessed are they which love thee, for they shall rejoice in thy peace. Blessed are they which have been sorrowful, for they shall rejoice in thee. When they have seen thy glory, they shall be glad for evermore. For Jerusalem shall be built up, and all her streets shall say: Alleluia! O blessed be God forever and ever more, Alleluia!
