2000
Dan Steven
Written in 1997 when Dan was at Trent University. He wanted his multi-cultural choir to sing it in a myriad of layered parts.
Silence in Jerusalem

Silence in Jerusalem City, silence
Silence in Jerusalem City, silence ...

Silence in Jerusalem City, silence in Jerusalem
Silence in Jerusalem City, silence in Jerusalem ...

Baby cry, soldier die, Lord I ask why we begin again
Under the night sky, the angels sigh
Almighty Eye watch us fall down again, fall down
tumble tumble tumble
Fall down
Tumble tumble tumble

Resurrection

Silence in Jerusalem City, silence in Jerusalem
Silence in Jerusalem City, silence in Jerusalem ...

Tear down this temple, tear down this temple, tear down this temple
And I will raise it up in three days

From Tutankhamen to World War II
You’ve been praying for me, I’ve been praying for you
From David’s birthday to Hitler’s grave
I’ve been waiting for your love
To come walking on the waves to save me
Amen, save me, amen, save me

Silence in Jerusalem City, silence in Jerusalem (4x)
Silence in Jerusalem City, silence in Jerusalem,
Tumble Tumble Tumble
Tumble Tumble Tumble
Tumble Tumble Tumble
Silence in Jerusalem City, silence in Jerusalem
Tear down this temple, tear down this temple, tear down this temple
And I will raise it up in three days
Silence in Jerusalem City .......silence ........
