Lyrics

The Holy City (1943) Stephen Adams, F. E. Weatherly

LAST NIGHT I LAY A SLEEPING THERE CAME A DREAM SO FAIR
I STOOD IN OLD JERUSALEM BESIDE THE TEMPLE THERE
I HEARD THE CHILDREN SINGING AND EVER AS THEY SAY
I THOUGHT THE VOICE OF ANGELS FROM HEAV’N IN ANSWER RANG (2X)

JERUSALEM, JERUSALEM LIFT UP YOUR GATES AND SING
HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST HOSANNA TO YOUR KING

AND THEN I THOUGHT MY DREAM WAS CHANGED
THE STREETS NO LONGER RANG
HUSHED WHERE THE GLAD HOSANNAS THE LITTLE CHILDREN SANG
THE SUN GREW DARK WITH MYSTERY THE MORN WAS COLD AND CHILL
AS THE SHADOW OF A CROSS AROSE UPON A LONELY HILL (2X)

JERUSALEM, JERUSALEM HARK HOW THE ANGELS SING
HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST HOSANNA TO YOUR KING

AND ONCE AGAIN THE SCENE WAS CHANGED
NOW EARTH THERE SEEMED TO BE
I SAW THE HOLY CITY BESIDE THE TIDELESS SEA
THE LIGHT OF GOD WAS ON ITS STREETS THE GATES WERE OPEN WIDE
AND ALL WHO WOULD MIGHT ENTER AND NO ONE WAS DENIED
NO NEED OF MOON OR STARS BY NIGHT OR SUN TO SHINE BY DAY
IT WAS THE NEW JERUSALEM THAT WOULD NOT PASS AWAY (2X)

JERUSALEM, JERUSALEM SING FOR THE NIGHT IS O’ER
HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST HOSANNA FOREVER MORE (2X)
