Jerusalem Of Gold

Oh, Jerusalem of gold
And of light and of bronze
I am the lute for all your songs

Oh, Jerusalem of gold
And of light and of bronze
I am the lute for all your songs

The mountain air is clear as water 
The scent of pines around 
Is carried on the breeze of twilight
And tinkling bells resound

The trees and stones there softly slumber,
A dream enfolds them all
So solitary lies the city
And at its heart a wall

Oh, Jerusalem of gold
And of light and of bronze
I am the lute for all your songs

Oh, Jerusalem of gold
And of light and of bronze
I am the lute for all your songs

But as I sing to you, my city
And you with crowns adorn
I am the least of all your children
Of all the poets born

Your name will scorch my lips forever
Like a seraph's kiss, I'm told
If I forget thee, golden city
Jerusalem of gold

Oh, Jerusalem of gold
And of light and of bronze
I am the lute for all your songs

Oh, Jerusalem of gold
And of light and of bronze
I am the lute for all your songs
