Jerusalem


Jerusalem. Scott Zacaroli. The Time Is Now.

~

O Jerusalem, O Jerusalem

O Jerusalem, I love you, Jerusalem

~

You killed your prophets

and you stoned those who came

to plead for your life

~

But if you will turn back,

if you will see what you’ve done

I will answer your cry

~

O Jerusalem, O Jerusalem

O Jerusalem, I love you, Jerusalem

~

So often I’ve wanted

to gather your children,

but you went your own way

~

Now the time has come

Your hour is near

Please, hear what I say

~

O America, O America

O America, I love you, America

~

I haven’t come to condemn

I’ve come here to heal

and forgive all your sin

~

If you will humble yourself

and once more utter My name

I will revive you again

~

O America, O America

O America…
