32 A SONG OF BARUCH
Exsurge, Jerusalem

Refrain: Lead us, O God, with joy*
to walk in the light of glory.
1 Arise, O Jerusalem, stand upon the height:*
look to the east and see your children,
2 Gathered from the west and the east*
at the word of the Holy One.
3 They rejoice that God has remembered them*
and has brought them back to you.
4 For God has ordered that every high mountain*
and the everlasting hills be made low,
5 And the valleys filled up to make level ground*
so that they may walk safely in the glory of God.
6 The woods and every fragrant tree*
have shaded them at God’s command.
7 For God will lead his people with joy
   in the light of glory*
with the mercy and righteousness that comes from God.
Glory . . . Baruch 5. 5-9
Lead us, O God, with joy*
to walk in the light of glory.
