Of Solomon. For expectation.
Sound in Sion the trumpet to summon the saints, (2) 1Proclaim in Jerusalem the voice of him who brings good tidings That the God of Israel has shown mercy in his visitation of them. (3) 2Stand upon the height, O Jerusalem, and behold your children, From the east and the west, gathered together by the Lord. (4) 3From the north they come in the joy of their God: From the islands far away has God gathered them. (5) 4High mountains has he made low to make a plain for them: (6) The hills fled at their approach. 5 The woods gave them shade as they passed by: (7) God caused to spring up for them every kind of sweet-scented tree; 6 That Israel might pass by at the visitiation of the glory of their God. (8) 7Put on, O Jerusalem, the garments of your glory: Make ready the robe of your consecration; For God has spoken good concerning Israel, for ever and ever. (9) 8May the Lord perform what he has spoken concerning Israel and Jerusalem: May the Lord raise up Israel by his glorious name. 9 The mercy of the Lord be upon Israel for ever and ever.
