JERUSALEM Collaboration with Dalia Shahein (Jordan). Posted here on PoetrySoup, 04/21/2017 I, First My Salem, my shalom, maybe yours as well - Be well; build a well again – we’ll all be well, or Better than before in Jerusalem of the heart Whose Jerusalem made Jesus weep? “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, You who kill the Prophets …” Forgive me, Redirect me, as your beloved exiles sang Even in despair as long as millennia, you call your own! Salem of mystery, of history, of prophecy! Jesus had wanted to gather her under His tallit, Robe Of Righteousness – by our Rabbi of Righteousness. Jesus showed his royal face and mystery-lineage once To Abraham, revered Patriarch, respected Father: As the High-Priest without beginning or end, Melchizadek, King of Salem & Righteousness! Who took the first tithe from our father-in-common And delivered bread and wine: the first Communion O Jerusalem of Jesus, How Long – how much longer? I adore Thee like no earthly City Come Jerusalem, Mother, Father, Heaven, Earth All tongues sing of Thee, O Jerusalem, Come II, Second Jerusalem land of faith, land of all religions on earth Jerusalem oh beloved Jerusalem, land of martyrs and saintly blood Jerusalem where Prophet Muhammad rose to the seventh sky You're the heaven that's on earth You're the meaning of purity and clarity, The meaning of beauty and love, Jerusalem – Land of GOD and all prophets We seek you, we pray … to be in the hands of GOD In you we seek to illuminate the darkness from our hearts In you we seek freedom from our sins Jerusalem oh beloved Jerusalem We will die without you; we will fight to love you like others You belong to God’s children; all of God – yes, ALL of GOD III, Third My Jerusalem, Thy Jerusalem, City of Past And forever; replete with Prophecy – Speak!
