Representative Text

1 Jerusalem, my happy home,
How do I sigh for thee!
When shall my exile have an end,
Thy joys when shall I see?
Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
Jerusalem, my happy home,
How do I sigh for thee!

2 No sun, no moon, in borrowed light
Revolves thine hours away;
The Lamb on Calv'ry's mountain slain
Is thy eternal day.
Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
Jerusalem, my happy home,
How do I sigh for thee!

3 From every eye He wipes the tear,
All sighs and sorrow cease;
No more alternate hope and fear,
But everlasting peace.
Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
Jerusalem, my happy home,
How do I sigh for thee!

4 The thoughts of thee to us is given,
Our sorrows to beguile,
To anticipate the bliss of Heaven,
In His eternal smile.
Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
Jerusalem, my happy home,
How do I sigh for thee!
