Jerusalem the Holy City, Music & Text: S. Adams & E. Weathery 1892. Harmony: Lawrence Ssemanda October 1998

Jerusalem, Jerusalem

Lift up your gates and sing

Hosanna in the highest

Hosanna to your King

 

  1. Last night I lay asleeping

There came a dream so fair,

I stood in old Jerusalem

Beside the temple there

I heard the children singing

And ever as they sang

Me thought the voice of angels from heav’n in answer rang

Me thought the voice of angels from heav’n in answer rang

 

Jerusalem! Jerusalem!

Hark! How the Angels

Sing Hosanna in the highest

Hosanna to your King

 

  1. And then me thought my dream was chang’d,

The streets no longer rang

Hush’d were the glad hosannas

The little ch’dren sang

The sun grew dark with mystery,

The morn was cold and chill

As the shadow of a cross arose up on a lonely hill

As the shadow of a cross arose up on a lonely hill

 

Jerusalem! Jerusalem!

Hark! How the Angels

Sing Hosanna in the highest

Hosanna to your King

 

  1. And once again the scene was chang’d

New earth there seemed to be

I saw the Holy City besides the tideless sea

The light of God was on its streets

The gates were open wide

And all who would might enter

And no one was denied

No need of moon or stars by night

Or sun to shine by day

It was a new Jerusalem that would not pass away

It was a new Jerusalem that would not pass away

 

Jerusalem! Jerusalem!

Sing for the night is o’er

Sing Hosanna in the highest

Hosanna forever more

Hosanna in the highest

Hosanna forever more
