Pray that Jerusalem may have

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.
