Psalter manuscript

Jerusalem (Rev 21)


Jerusalem, sweet destination
Beautified with heaven’s glory;
We meditate upon your story –
Away! We’re bound away
Where the dusk is bright as day.

Jerusalem, this earthly journey –
For your gates our souls are yearning,
All hearts and minds anticipating
The Lamb upon His throne,
Praised by every tribe and tongue.

Jerusalem, your healing fountain
From God’s throne flows like a river –
Tranquillity for every nation;
Your trees and fruit-filled leaves
Sanctify this world with peace.
