PSALM 122, by            
First Line: O what lively delight, o what a jollity
Last Line: Where gods mansion is now to be edifyd.

O what lively delight, O what a jollity
This newes unto me brought newly delivered
That Gods house ruined should be reedifyd
And that shortly we should evry man enter it
O now Thy galerys lovely Jerusalem
Thy gates shall be my rest, now not unordered
Nor wide scatred as erst, but very citty-like
All commoned in One shall be Jerusalem
Now there convenient place to the company
Gods hand hath gathered shall be alotted out
His passed benefitts jointly to testify
And so prayse him as once praysed him Israël
Now there shall be the seat, where to be justiced
All shall freely resort weary of injuryes
Seat, whose lofty receit loftily may receive
Davids posterity royaly honored
Pray then, we I say Peace to Jerusalem
To you Prosperity friends to Jerusalem
Thy walls thy joïfull fortifications
Peace and plenty betide never abandoning
With good reason I now wish Thee al happyness
Whose blisse is generall unto my Countrymen
With good cause shal I pray dayly Thy bettering
Where Gods Mansion is now to be edifyd.
