My Heart Was Glad to Hear the Welcome Sound
- My heart was glad to hear the welcome sound,
the call to seek Jehovah’s house of prayer;
our feet are standing here on holy ground,
within thy gates, thou city grand and fair.
- God’s people to Jerusalem repair
to hear his word and worship him with praise;
the throne of justice stands eternal there,
Messiah’s throne through endless length of days.
- Let earnest prayer be made for Zion’s peace;
thy sons who hold thee dear shall prosper well;
may blessing in thy palaces increase
and peace within thy walls forever dwell.
- For all my brethren and companions’ sakes
my prayer shall be, let peace in thee abide;
since God the Lord in thee his dwelling makes,
to thee my love shall never be denied.
