We join Jesus ion hjs love for the holy city.

Thursday, 10/29/15

Throughout the Bible the holy city of Jerusalem served as a symbol for the Lord’s people.

Abraham expressed his complete obedience to God by bringing his only son to be sacrificed on Mount Moriah, that was later to be the site of Jerusalem’s temple. In the Book of Revelation the heavenly Jerusalem is the abode of the saved.

(I did my best, but I couldn't get this down evenly)

 Last night I lay asleeping there came a dream so fair
,                                        I stood in old Jerusalem, beside the temple there.

I  heard the children singing and ever
 as they sang,   Methought the voice of Angels,
 from Heaven in answer rang,
  Methought the
 voice of Angels, from Heaven in answer rang

Jerusalem, Jerusalem! 
Lift up my gates and sing
Hosanna in the highest. 
Hosanna to your King!
And then me thought my dream was chang'd,                                                 

The streets no longer rang. 
Hush'd were 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, 
As the shadow 
of  a cross arose, upon a lonely hill

Jerusalem, Jerusalem, 
Hark! How the Angels sing                                                                          
Hosanna in the highest, 
Hosanna to your King

And once again the scene was chang'd,                                                                                              New earth there seem'd to be
,                                                                                                                    I saw the Holy City rise beside a 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,
                                                                               It was the new Jerusalem that would not pass away.

Jerusalem, Jerusalem
. Sing for the night is o'er
,                                                                                  Hosanna in the highest, 
Hosanna for evermore.                                                                                 
Hosanna in the highest, 
Hosanna for evermore!
