Journeys III - Abie Rotenberg - Yerushalayim

Journeys III
Abie Rotenberg
"Yerushalayim"

Come let us sing the song of a city
Known for its beauty splendor and grace
Come let us find the words to describe her
She is not like, not like any other place

*Chorus*
Yerushalayim the place to live
Yerushalayim Harim Saviv (Tehillim 125:2)
Yerushalayim ir shel Shalom
Yerushalayim we're coming home

Yerushalayim the sky so blue
Yerushalayim return to you
Yerushalayim ir shel Shalom
Yerushalayim we're coming home

Walk down a street named for the tzaddik
Who lived by this very road
Step into a shul, you almost can hear
The words of the sages speaking wisdom of old

Where else in this world can you find a wall
Whenever you touch it, it touches you
Reach for its stones, it's moist with the tears
Of our hopes and our dreams, that we know will soon come true

*Chorus*

Dreams of past splendor and whispers of glory
Your walls tell your story your song...waiting so long
For the time when our tears will be stilled
Our prayers fulfilled, our city rebuilt...

Join in the crowd rushing to shul
As the siren invites the queen
Shabbos has come bringing peace to each home
The city's at rest, the feeling is so serene

Travel the land, the mountains and valleys
There is a story behind each stone
But when you return, your heart will rejoice
As Bruchim HaBa'im, appears and you know you're home

Yerushalayim the place to live
Yerushalayim Harim Saviv (Tehillim 125:2)
Yerushalayim ir shel Shalom
Yerushalayim we're coming home

Yerushalayim the sky so blue
Yerushalayim return to you
Yerushalayim ir shel Shalom
Yerushalayim we're coming home
