Come let us sing, the song of a city
Known for its beauty, splendor, and grace
Come let us find, the words to describe her
She is not like, not like any other place

Yerushalayim the place to live
Yerushalayim harim saviv
Yerushalayim iyr shel shalom
Yerushalayim we're going home

Yerushalayim the sky so blue
Yerushalayim we turn to you
Yerushalayim iyr shel shalom
Yerushalayim we're going home

Walk down a street
Named for the tzadik
Who lived by this very road
Step into a shul, you almost can hear the words of the sages speaking the wisdom of old

Where else in this world, can you find a wall
Wherever you touch it, it touches you
Reach for its stones, they're moist with the tears
Of our hopes and dreams that we know will soon come true

Yerushalayim the place to live
Yerushalayim harim saviv
Yerushalayim iyr shel shalom
Yerushalayim we're going home

Yerushalayim the sky's so blue
Yerushalayim return to you
Yerushalayim iyr shel shalom
Yerushalayim we're going home

Dreams of past splendor, and whispers of glory
Your walls tell your story, your song - Waiting so long
For the time when our tears will be stilled, our prayers fulfilled, our city rebuilt

Joining the crowd, rushing to shul
As the siren invites the queen
Shabbos has come, bringing peace to each home
The city's at rest, the feeling is so serene

Travel the land, the mountains and valleys
There is a story behind each stone
But when you return, your heart will rejoice
As bruchim habaim appears, and you know you're home

Yerushalayim the place to live
Yerushalayim harim saviv
Yerushalayim iyr shel shalom
Yerushalayim we're going home

Yerushalayim the sky so blue
Yerushalayim we turn to you
Yerushalayim iyr shel shalom
Yerushalayim we're going home

Yerushalayim the place to live
Yerushalayim harim saviv
Yerushalayim iyr shel shalom
Yerushalayim we're going home

Yerushalayim the sky so blue
Yerushalayim we turn to you
Yerushalayim iyr shel shalom
Yerushalayim we're going home...
