What a joy, what a joy for us to say:
“We’re on our way to the house of the Lord.”
Coming to Jerusalem, on this holy ground,
city mounted on a hill, its houses all around.
All the tribes of Israel, countless caravans,
everyone is going there to where the temple stands.
Through your gates we’ll enter in, open wide the
door. Here we’ll find a welcome place and peace forevermore.
