1 When Jesus Christ came down from Heaven,
To make salvation plain,
He made his way to the earth abroad,
To raise poor fallen man.

Chorus:
Hallelujah, do n't you hear Jerusalem mourn?
Do n't you ear Jerusalem mourn?
Hallelujah, do' nt you hear Jerusalem mourn?
O do n't you hear Jerusalem mourn?
Hallelujah, do n't you hear Jerusalem mourn?
Do n't you ear Jerusalem mourn?
Hallelujah, do' nt you hear Jerusalem mourn?
O do n't you hear Jerusalem mourn?

2 When Jesus Christ was an infant babe,
He lay in Mary's arm,
All in the stable of Bethlehem,
And the beasts did keep him worm. [Chorus]

3 When Jesus Christ was twelve years old
He was a missionary, too.
Why, he talked to the lawyers and doctors so,
They could n't tell what to do. [Chorus]

4 When Jesus Christ grew up to be a man,
He went about doing good;
He was the Savior of mankind,
And that was understood. [Chorus]

5 The Book of Revelation
God has to us revealed;
The mystery of salvation,
And the book of Seven Seals. [Chorus]

6 Now, the way this book was opened
John plainly doth inform;
That the law of God was broken,
And the Savior must be born. [Chorus]

7 John looked toward the burning throne;
He looked, and he did not fail;
He looked, and he saw the lovely Lamb,
And he surely had been slain. [Chorus]

8 John took the book out of his right hand,
And he loosened every seal;
Give justice my command,
My people to redeem. [Chorus]

9 If you want to know the Conqueror's name,
It is the Word of God;
His eyes are like a burning flame,
And he is the Lord of lords. [Chorus]
