O Jerusalem! Seat of the king of Salem, city of the great King!
by ENOCH JOHN
O Jerusalem! Who has killed her prophets, the Messiah wept for you!
Old city and New city but still one city.O Jerusalem! Jerusalem!
Abraham met the great king of Salem after the slaughter of Chedorlaomer,
And the king served his triumphant servant bread and wine,
A mighty king with no beginning of days, no end of life.
The Messiah did walk upon your dusty streets and the brown earth of Jerusalem,
and through the valley of Kedron, where lies the Garden of Gethsemane, here he agonised greatly,
Then along the ''Via Dolorosa'', he toted that heavy cross for us,
But there was a triumphant ascent at the Mount of Olives.
Finally John, in the apocalypse saw a new Jerusalem descending!
