Comforted in Jerusalem

by Janis Gaines

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
It is the city of God
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Where all is peace and joy and love

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
It is the city of gold
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Where you will never grow old

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Where the Lamb reigns on high
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Where every tear shall be dry

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
And your heart shall rejoice
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Now lift up a mighty voice

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Where sorrow passes away
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
One bright, eternal, glorious day

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Where death cannot be
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
For He loves you and He loves me

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Where His love ever flows
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Following wherever He goes

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
And the time is drawing nigh
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
The heavenly city in the sky

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Oh, won’t you journey there
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Leave behind your worldly care

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Where we’ll worship and dance
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Partake of Christ’s inheritance

For He is the King of Glory
Yes, He is the King of Glory

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Count all things but loss
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Knowing Jesus triumphed on the cross

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Where your soul will be saved
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Your victory is an open grave

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
It is the hope of the earth
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
The precious hope of the new birth

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Where there is no more pain
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
This is why Jesus came

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Oh, chosen Israel
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Escaping fiery flames of hell

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Don’t be afraid
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
A way to heaven has been made

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
There is nothing to fear
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
With every breath it’s drawing near

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Oh, what shall I bring
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Your life, a fragrant offering

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
It is the city of rest
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
He’s prepared for you His very best

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Where He calls you by name
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
And you shall never be the same

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Where His mercy is free
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
A reward is waiting there for thee

You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Where healing is found
You shall be comforted in Jerusalem
Where angels sing a heavenly sound
