REJOICE ABOUT JERUSALEM

Rejoice with Jerusalem, be glad about her,
be glad all you that love her,
all who love her.

On your walls, Oh city of David
I have stationed watchmen,
all day and night.

Do not fear, my servant Jacob,
for your enemies shall be scattered before you.

Look about you and behold; see all
as they are all gathering and coming unto you.

And your people
are all holy
and forever shall inherit the land.
