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 night’s as bright as Day.

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

Jerusalem, your healing fountain
From God’s throne just like a river
Flows silently to every nation;
Your trees and fruit-filled leaves
For the world have purchased peace.
