Performed at the Coronation of Queen Anne, this anthem remained popular throughout the eighteenth century. Boyce published it in his "Cathedral Music".

The current edition has been prepared from a publication intended for less prestigious and simpler choirs: Harmonia coelestis, or The Harmony of Heaven imitated, London 1780.
Lyrics: Various scriptures

Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem: praise thy God, O Sion.
For kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and queens thy nursing mothers.
As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of our God:
God upholdeth the same for ever.
Be thou exalted Lord in thine own strength:
So will we sing and praise thy power.
