JERUSALEM

  Lyrics

Verse 1
See him in JerusalemWalking where the crowds areOnce these streets had sung to himNow they cry for murder

Such a frail and lonely manHolding up the heavy crossSee him walking in JerusalemOn the road to save us

Verse 2
See him there upon the hillHear the scorn and laughterSilent as a lamb he waitsPraying to the father

See the king who made the sunAnd the moon and shining starsLet the soldiers hold and nail him downSo that he could save them

Verse 3
See him there upon the crossNow no longer breathingDust that formed the watching crowdsTakes the blood of Jesus

Feel the earth is shaking nowSee the veil is split in twoAnd he stood before the wrath of GodShielding sinners with his blood

Verse 4
See the empty tomb todayDeath could not contain himOnce the servant of the worldNow in victory reigning

Lift your voices to the oneWho is seated on the throneSee him in the new JerusalemPraise the one who saved us
