The Holy City

C G Last night I lay a-sleeping G7 There came a dream so fair F I stood in old Jerusalem D7 G7 Beside the temple there C G I heard the children singing G7 C And ever as they sang Gdim7 G Methought the voice of angels D7 G From heaven in answer rang D7 G Em Methought the voice of angels G D7 G F C G7 From heaven in answer rang Chorus C Jerusalem, Jerusalem F C Lift up your voice and sing G Em Am Hosanna in the highest C G7 C Hosanna to your King And then methought my dream was changed The streets no longer rang Hushed were the glad hosannas The little children sang The sun grew dark with mystery The morn was cold and chill As the shadow of a cross arose Upon a lonely hill As the shadow of a cross arose Upon a lonely hill E F# And once again the scene was changed A E New earth there seemed to be C#m C7 Em E B7 E I saw the Holy City beside the tideless sea C#m G#m The light of God was on its streets G D The gates were open wide G C And all who would might enter in F G G7 C And no one was denied E7 Am E7 Am No need of moon, of stars by night F Dm C Or sun to shine by day Gdim7 G/D It was the New Jerusalem D G D That would not pass away G D7 G Em It was the New Jerusalem G D7 G That would not pass away Last chorus: Jerusalem, Jerusalem Sing for the night is o'er Hosanna in the highest Hosanna forevermore Hosanna in the highest Hosanna forevermore
