Jerusalem On High

Jerusalem On High is a Hymn written by minister Samuel Crossman and music composed by Charles Steggall.

Jerusalem on high, my song that city is, My home whene’er I die, the center of my bliss; O happy place! When shall I be, My God, with Thee, to see Thy face?

There dwells my Lord, my King, judged here unfit to live; There angels to Him sing and lowly homage give; O happy place! When shall I be, My God, with Thee, to see Thy face?

The patriarchs of old there from their travels cease; The prophets there behold their longed for Prince of peace; O happy place! When shall I be, My God, with Thee, to see Thy face?

The Lamb’s Apostles there I might with joy behold, The harpers I might hear harping on harps of gold; O happy place! When shall I be, My God, with Thee, to see Thy face?

The bleeding martyrs, they within those courts are found, Clothèd in pure array, their scars with glory crowned; O happy place! When shall I be, My God, with Thee, to see Thy face?

Ah me! ah me! that I in Kedar’s tent here stay; No place like that on high; Lord thither guide my way; O happy place! When shall I be, My God, with Thee, to see Thy face?
