Psalm 122: Let Us Go Rejoicing (Joncas)

Here is a practice recording for Psalm 122 for First Sunday of Advent in Cycle A of the Liturgical calendar. It was composed by Michael Joncas. 

REFRAIN: Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord.
Let us go rejoicing to the house of the Lord.

1. I rejoiced when I heard them say, "Let us go to the house of the Lord."
And now our feet are standing within your gates, O Jerusalem." REFRAIN

2. Jerusalem is a city built with unity and strength. 
It is there, it is there that the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord. REFRAIN

3. For Israel's law is to praise God's name and there to give God thanks.
There are set the judgment thrones for all of David's house. REFRAIN

4. Pray for peace of Jerusalem! May those who love you prosper!
May peace ever reign within your walls, and wealth within your buildings. REFRAIN

5. For love of my family and love of my friends I pray that peace be yours.
For love of the house of the Lord, our God, I pray for your good. REFRAIN
