Words: Scot­tish Psal­ter, 1650.

Music: York; mel­o­dy from the Scot­tish Psal­ter, 1650, har­mo­ny from J. Mil­ton (?-1647).

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.
