Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem, praise thy God, O Sion.
For kings shall be thy nursing fathers and queens thy nursing mothers.
As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of our God, God upholdeth the same for ever.
Be thou exalted, Lord in thine own strength.
So will we sing, and praise thy power.
