Walking today for the first time within the walls of Old Jerusalem I remembered again this wonderful song I often listen to and that has had a greater significande the last months in anticipation of this trip… I couldn’t find it on youtube, so I just post the text for now. Available on iTunes and the like.

Sung by John Micheal Talbot.

Refrain
I rejoiced when I heard them say,
“Let us go to the house of the Lord.”
And now our feet are standing within your gates,
Jerusalem. (repeat)

Jerusalem, God’s city,
built strong by the hand of the Lord.
To Jerusalem will the tribes go up,
the people of our God.

For the peace of Jerusalem we pray;
may peace come to your homes.
For the love of my relatives and friends,
may peace come to you. Sing! A New Creation

For the love of the house of the Lord,
I will pray for you.
May the throne of justice
be restored in you.

Jerusalem, God’s city,
built strong by the hand of the Lord.
To Jerusalem will the tribes go up,
the people of our God.
