Hear Jerusalem Moan

print

Well I got a home on the other shore
Don’t you hear Jerusalem moan
I know I’ll live there forever more
Don’t you hear Jerusalem moan

    Don’t you hear Jerusalem moan, don’t you hear Jerusalem moan
    Thank God there’s a Heaven and a ringin’ in my soul
    and my soul set free
    Don’t you hear Jerusalem moan

Well now Sister Mary she wears a chain
Don’t you hear Jerusalem moan
And on every link is a Jesus’ name
Don’t you hear Jerusalem moan

The devil wears a hypocrite shoe
Don’t you hear Jerusalem moan
you don’t watch out he’s gonna step ’em on you
Don’t you hear Jerusalem moan

Now the Methodist preacher is a mighty fine man
Don’t you hear Jerusalem moan
Showin’ us the way to the promised land
Don’t you hear Jerusalem moan
