Pray that Je­ru­sa­lem may have
Peace and fe­li­ci­ty:
Let them that love thee and thy peace
Have still pros­pe­ri­ty.

Therefore I wish that peace may still
Within thy walls re­main,
And ev­er may thy pa­lac­es
Prosperity re­tain.

Now, for my friends and breth­ren’s sake,
Peace be in thee, I’ll say;
And for the house of God our Lord
I’ll seek thy good al­way.
