Psalm 122: Let Us Go!

$0.00

Psalm 122 is full of exuberance at the mere thought of going to worship. For the Israelites, the song would have accompanied them on the long journey to Jerusalem. I can imagine this song would be one of their favorites along the way: it called them to join the journey, it boosted flagging spirits along the way, and it would be a grand anthem upon arriving at their destination.

Like all my Pilgrim Psalms, “Let Us Go!” is very simple and easily learned without music. It is an eight-measure chorus repeated ad-lib with three verses that can be sung by a leader on top of the chorus. Think of it as Hillbilly Taizé.

Let us go; Let us go; Let us go to the house of the Lord!
Let us go; Let us go; Let us go to the house of the Lord!

1. I was glad when they said,
“Let us go to the house of the Lord!”
And now we’re standing before your doors.
Let us go to the house of the Lord!

Let us go…

2. The city of God
is made of more than stone.
It is founded on justice and love
for all who go to the house of the Lord!

Let us go…

3. Give us peace,
O Lord, give us peace.
O Lord, give all your children peace, we pray,
when we go to the house of the Lord!

Let us go…
