Jerusalem and People

Jerusalem and People


Jerusalem, O Jerusalem, thy walls have been breached

Thy city gates are ashes, lying in the streets

Thy iron bars are torn down; thy enemy enters with ease

And thy remnant is afflicted, especially by disease

Hear our prayers O Lord; grant us thy mercy to rebuild

Draw nigh to us O Lord; let us be within thy will.

Jerusalem is a reproach; a disgrace to those who believe

O Lord, how long must our souls wait; how long shall we grieve?

Arise and let us rebuild; strengthen your hands for the deed

Jerusalem, O Jerusalem; the hand of thy Lord is on thee



People, O people, by sin your walls are breached

Your heartís gate is burnt ashes, lying in the street

With no iron bars or locks, to hold Satan at bay

Your soul stands in jeopardy; both in night and day

But your soul can be redeemed; not to go to waste

By Godís wonderful mercy and Godís saving grace

Draw strength from the Lord; His blessings for you to savor

Ask Jesus into your heart; accept Him as Lord and Savior

Arise and testify; give glory to God for Christí deed

People, O people, Jesus died for thee
