Last night I lay asleeping
There came a dream so fair,
I stood in old Jerusalem
Beside the temple there
I heard the children singing
And ever as they sang,
Methought the voice of Angels
From Heaven in answer rang

"Jerusalem, Jerusalem!
Lift up your gates and sing,
Hosanna in the highest.
Hosanna to your King!"

And then methought my dream was chang'd
The streets no longer rang
Hush'd 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

"Jerusalem, Jerusalem!
Hark! How the Angels sing,
Hosanna in the highest,
Hosanna to your King!"

And once again the scene was chang'd
New earth there seem'd to be,
I saw the Holy City
Beside the tideless sea
The light of God was on its streets
The gates were open wide,
And all who would might enter
And no one was denied.
No need of moon or stars by night,
Or sun to shine by day,
It was the new Jerusalem
That would not pass away
It was the new Jerusalem
That would not pass away


"Jerusalem! Jerusalem
Sing for the night is o'er
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna for evermore!"

"Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna for evermore!"

LA CIUDAD SANTA

Anoche tuve un sueño sublime, arrobador:
Miraba yo a Jerusalén y al cielo en su esplendor.
Oí cantar a niños un coro sin igual,
En tanto se escuchaba un antema angelical,
En tanto se escuchaba un antema angelical.

Jerusalén, Jerusalén, prorrumpe en voz triunfal
¡Hosanna en las alturas!
¡Hosanna al Señor tu Rey!

Y luego el sueño se cambió y una quietud reinó:
Callaron las hosannas
Y el infantil clamor;
Tras misterioso manto el sol veló allí,
La sombra de una cruz en el calvario apareció,
La sombra de una cruz en el calvario apareció.

Jerusalén, Jerusalén, prorrumpe en voz triunfal
¡Hosanna en las alturas!
¡Hosanna al Señor tu Rey!

Y un nuevo cuadro contemplé,
Prodigio fue sin par;
Y vi la ciudad santa junto al divino mar,
Dios la alumbraba con su luz sus puertas de oro vi,
Y quien deseaba en ella entrar cabida hallaba allí,
Estrellas luna y astro rey perdieron su fulgor
Al descender Jerusalén la nueva en su esplendor,
Al descender Jerusalén la nueva en su esplendor.

Jerusalén, Jerusalén, prorrumpe en voz triunfal
¡Hosanna en las alturas!
¡Hosanna al Señor tu Rey!
¡Hosanna en las Alturas!
¡Hosanna al Señor tu Rey!
