Songs/
Jerusalem Day
This is Jerusalem

Lyrics: Eitan Peretz

Music: Nachum Hayman

Roofs of buildings and chiselled stone

And in the streets the soft tranquillity is hidden

And fresh gusts, the treetops are quivering

And laughter in the courtyards, between the washing lines

 

This is Jerusalem, of the stones of the Western Wall

This is Jerusalem built magnificently

This is Jerusalem, of the stones of the Western Wall

This is Jerusalem built magnificently

 

It has one hundred gates: surrounded by olive trees

In the alleyways there is no old age

The songs are playing, over the Temple Mount

On the way down to the Monastery of the Cross

 

This is Jerusalem.....

 

And the voice of the muezzin is calling from the spire

From the churches the bells peal in response

And a small youth with his phylacteries prays

And the tunes merge above the forest

 

This is Jerusalem....
