Psalm 122:  a Psalm of Ascents



  • God of justice and peace, 
    from the heavens you rain down mercy and kindness, 
    that all on earth may stand in awe and wonder 
    before your marvelous deeds. 
    Raise our heads in expectation, 
    that we may yearn for the coming day of the Lord 
    and stand without blame before your Son, Jesus Christ, 
    who lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen. (source)



About the song Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem from the musician:  "This song was recorded in Fall 2008. I wrote it shortly after my son Isaac passed away. It became a song of hope and peace for my soul. This is the original recording."
