He Came to Jerusalem



They told him "Master do not go there
There are those that want you dead."
He said it was his destiny
For them his blood be shed.
He came to Jerusalem He came to Jerusalem
And at the feast of passover Jesus broke the loaf and said "this is my body To be broken as this bread."
He came to Jerusalem He came to Jerusalem Came to die.
And Jesus took a cup of wine And passed it all around His blood that would be shed Lest the lost could be found.
He came to Jerusalem He came to Jerusalem For our sins.
And by the kiss of a friend He was betrayed that night To amazement of friend and foe He went without a fight.
He came to Jerusalem He came to Jerusalem Holy Lamb
He died that day upon a cross And rose again in three To win the war of sin and death And set all captives free
He came to Jerusalem He came to Jerusalem.
