You are not just a city.


You are not just a city,
You are more than that,
Much, much more,
For you are the very heart of God.

Let no one say you are just a city,
Let them that do be accursed,
You are more than that,
You are the brightest jewel in His crown.

Jerusalem, eternal and holy,
Not just a city,
The throne room is what you are,
From you He will reign.

Not just a city,
You are the very heart,
A bright shining star,
Yerushilim, this is what you are.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
