Lyrics

Nobody told me the road would be this hard

The hill would be so steep

But history has written down the words you said

And to this day repeat

 

You are foe

You are friend

From the start

To the end

You are all

You are one

We are yours

Jerusalem

La la la…..

 

Nobody told me that freedom would take this long

As years they fade away

Nobody told me that hate could be this strong

To eclipse the light of day

 

You are foe

You are friend

From the start

To the end

You are all

You are one

We are yours

Jerusalem

La la la…..

 

And as the sun illuminates your dusty walls

We wonder what we’ll see

We know that you’ve shed your share of tears and blood

But what is victory

 

You are foe

You are friend

From the start

To the end

You are all

You are one

We are yours

Jerusalem

La la la…..
