1998 This is Jerusalem

THIS IS JERUSALEM

Words and Music by Jonathan Sacks

 

I will go up to a city so new,

A city so old our fathers once knew.

It lives today forever to stay.

This is Jerusalem

I will go up, you will come with me,

Up to a land where we can be free.

Freedom to live, to laugh and rejoice,

This is Jerusalem

 

Chorus:

This is Jerusalem, city of hopes and dreams.

This is Jerusalem, forever life it brings.

Forever it will be, for all the world to see.

This is Jerusalem.

 

Jerusalem lives forever to be,

 A light to the world all the nations shall see.

God’s mighty hand brings life to the Land.

This is Jerusalem.

From every nation people will come,

Up to the city, Jerusalem.

City of praise, city of joy.

This is Jerusalem

 

(Chorus)

 

This is the year that never would come.

It’s finally here and we’ve just begun.

We’ll go to the Land, together we’ll stand,

Here in Jerusalem.

From this moment we’ve waited, now it’s come,

And this year, we’ll meet in Jerusalem.

Together we’ll sing, we’ll laugh and rejoice.

This is Jerusalem.

 

(Chorus)

LIFT YOUR VOICES

Words adapted from original Russian lyrics.
Music by Nikolai Haskin

 

Lord, I lift my voice and sing your praises.

Your mercy and your strength I will proclaim.

You are my defender and my hiding place.

My Messiah, King Y’suha.

You are the defender of truth and grace.

My Messiah, King Y’shua.

 

Lord, you are my rock and my salvation.

I sing this dong of praise unto your name.

You are my defender and my hiding place.

My Messiah, King Y’shua.

You are my defender, full of truth and grace,

My Messiah, King Y’shua.

 

Lift your voices and sing unto the Lord on high.

King Messiah, coming in the clouds.

He will reign in power from Jerusalem.

All the nations will gather there to worship him.

Every knee will bow and every tongue confess His name.

All the nations will gather there to worship Him.

Every knee will bow and tongue confess his name.

 

Lai, lai, lai….

BRETHREN, MY HEART’S DESIRE

Words and Music by Sara Herndon and Jonathan Sacks

 

Chorus:

Brethren, my heart’s desire,

And prayer to the God of Israel,

Is that they might be saved, they might be saved

(2X)

 

I tell you the truth in Messiah,

Sorrow and grief fill my heart.

My people, my brethren are dying.

I could wish that I were lost,

That they might be found in Him.

 

(Chorus)

 

Searching for God in the Torah.

Doing the works of the Law.

Striving in vain to be righteous.

Not knowing they need only to trust in Him.

 

One day He’ll come out of Zion.

The one who was pierced, they will see.

Their hearts will turn to Messiah,

Their sins he’ll forgive,

Righteous they’ll live in Him.

 

(Chorus)

LET US RETURN

Words and Music by Amer Olsen
And Stephen Katz

 

Chorus:

come, let us return unto the Lord.

Come, let us return unto the Lord.

 For he has torn, and he will heal us.

He has smitten and he will bind us up again

(2X)

 

After two days He will revive us.

On the third day He will raise us up.

And we shall live, we shall live in His sight.

(2X)

 

Then shall we know if we follow on to know the Lord.

His going forth is prepared as the morn.

And he shall come unto us as the rain,

As the former and the latter rain come down.

 

(Chorus)

 

Descant:

Jesus died for out sins,

And was buried and descended to the dead.

He was on the third day risen,

And He lives forevermore.

If you confess Jesus as Lord,

And believe in your heart,

That God has raised Him up from the dead,

You shall be saved.

 

(Chorus)

PRAISE YE THE LORD

Composer Unknown

 

Praise ye the Lord, praise ye the Lord.

From the heavens, praise Him in the heights.

Praise Him all His angels, praise him all his hosts.

Praise sun and moon.

Praise Him all ye stars of light.

Praise Him ye heaven of heavens.

And ye waters that are above the sky.

 

Let them praise the name of the Lord.

For He commanded and they were created.

Let them praise  the name of the Lord.

For He commanded and they were created.

HOW SHALL I COME BEFORE THE LORD?

Words and Music by Stuart Dauermann

 

How shall I come before the Lord,

And bow in worship before the eternal God.

Shall I come bringing calves of thousands of rams.

Shall I offer for my sin my first born son.

Is there cleansing for my soul in ten thousand rivers of oil.

How shall I please the Holy One (2x)

 

He has shown you, oh man, what is good.

What does the Lord require of you.

But doing justly, loving mercy.

Walking humbly with the Lord your God.

Doing justly, loving mercy,

Walking humbly with the Lord your God.

 

Instrumental

 

He has shown you, oh man, what is good.

What does the Lord require of you.

But doing justly, loving mercy,

Walking humbly with the Lord your God.

Doing justly, loving mercy,

Walking humbly with the Lord your God.

 

How shall I come before the Lord.

And bow in worship before the Eternal God.

Is there cleansing for my soul in ten thousand rivers of oil.

How shall I please the Holy One.

Come let us pray for Jerusalem.

Do not forget Jacob’s children.

Call on the one who brings shalom.

Y’shua, come take up your throne.

We will be watchmen on the walls of the city.

May God establish her days.

Worship the Lord, all his children.

Kneel to the King who brings shalom.

Y’shua at last on His throne.

PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM

 

They lyrics for this song have been removed by request of the song writer:

 

Shalom in Yeshua, please be so kind as to delete my song lyrics off your website – the song is entitled “Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem.”  This is the hyperlink to the lyrics on your website:  http://www.delusionresistance.org/christian/LWW/Jerusalem/jeru09.html

I therefore do not give you permission to post my lyrics on your website.  I am the sole owner of the lyrics as writer, music composer, and owner of the Myrig Music (ASCAP) publishing company. 

Even though you may have a wonderful ministry, when people do an internet search of my name, your website is listed; and since I do not even know any of you, I would prefer you do not put my lyrics on your website.

Thank you for understanding and respecting my request.

———————————————–

Sorry folks that I had to remove the lyrics. They are beautiful lyrics and I know that you will miss them. The lyrics came from a Jews for Jesus album and I mistakenly thought that since I have their blessing to post their lyrics; and it was their album, that I could post the lyrics to this song. I pray for the day when people who receive freely from the Ruach Ha Kodesh will realize that what He gives He owns and on that day we’ll post all things that He gives and give Him the glory and honor that He deserves and is so often denied. But until that day, my hands are tied and I woefully honor their request. Sing the Psalms!!

ZION’S OPEN GATES

Words adapted from original Russian lyrics
Music by Nikolai Haskin

 

The Lord will redeem and bring His people home.

They will enter Zion with song.

The heartbreaks and sorrows of former years are done.

For we see Y’shua, the Lord’s anointed one.

 

Chorus:

Messiah will greet us at Zion’s open gates.

Our hearts will rejoice when we shall see His face.

He brings us a cup full of everlasting joy.

With dancing and singing our hearts will be restored.

 

The Lord will redeem and make His people see,

Salvation promised by His Word.

The kingdom has come: hallelujah, praise the Lord.

Our hearts are at rest, our prayers have been heard

 

(Chorus)

 

Oh come, Lord Y’shua, we long to see your face.

The day when all will praise and honor you.

When you’ll come and greet us at Zion’s open gates.

We’ll bow down in worship and honor you in truth.

 

Messiah will greet us at Zion’s open gates.

Our people will gather and see him face to face.

We’ll walk in your truth and live in harmony.

The day has arrived you’ve set your people free (3X)

Hey!
