1 On the holy mountain stands the city founded by the LORD .
2 He loves the city of Jerusalem more than any other city in Israel.
3 O city of God, what glorious things are said of you! Interlude
4 I will count Egypt and Babylon among those who know me— also Philistia and Tyre, and even distant Ethiopia. They have all become citizens of Jerusalem!
5 Regarding Jerusalem it will be said, “Everyone enjoys the rights of citizenship there.” And the Most High will personally bless this city.
6 When the LORD registers the nations, he will say, “They have all become citizens of Jerusalem.” Interlude
7 The people will play flutes and sing, “The source of my life springs from Jerusalem!”
