Charles Villiers Stanford: Pray that Jerusalem may have peace

Pray that Jerusalem may have peace and felicity; let them that love thee and thy peace have still prosperity. Therefore I wish that peace may still within thy walls remain, and ever may thy palaces prosperity retain. Now for my friends’ and brethren’s sakes, peace be to thee, I’ll say; and for the house of God our Lord I’ll seek thy good alway. (Scottish Psalter, 1650)
