Jesus over Jerusalem

Oh Jerusalem

Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the centre of our world
Ascend and praise His name most high Hallelujah worthy is the lamb
As we look upon the valley too, the gate so beautiful
Where our Lord will enter in and free Jerusalem

Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the centre of our world
Where once messiah walked upon, the rock on which you are formed
He could have split you into two but patiently he bides
Peace will be restored and the blind will see, Jesus is the Christ

Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the centre of our world
Divided up, torn and mocked, a living remnant to gaze upon
Let us be like, the olive trees and know no boundaries
Until our lord returns to claim, pray peace for Jerusalem

Oh Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the Lord will not forget
The tears and pain will pass away you will recognise your worth
The promise of eternity will unfold before our eyes
When Jesus Christ returns to claim Jerusalem again

Jerusalem Amen, Jerusalem Amen
