Refrain:

All   Lead us, O God, with joy

to walk in the light of glory.

1    Arise, O Jerusalem, stand upon the height:  

look to the east and see your children,

2    Gathered from the west and the east  

at the word of the Holy One.

3    They rejoice that God has remembered them  

and has brought them back to you.

4    For God has ordered that every high mountain  

and the everlasting hills be made low,

5    And the valleys filled up to make level ground  

so that they may walk safely in the glory of God.

6    The woods and every fragrant tree  

have shaded them at God’s command.

7    For God will lead his people with joy

in the light of his glory  

with the mercy and righteousness that comes from God.

Baruch 5.5,6c,7-9

All   Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.

All   Lead us, O God, with joy

to walk in the light of glory.
