A Psalm for Jerusalem

Refrain:
Abraham’s sacrifice was curtailed
switched in time for mercy.

Verses:
The tortured rock of the Jebusites
is shut off from the elements
as if gold will protect it
after five thousand years

Leveled by Babylon and Rome then rebuilt
the place on Earth closest to God
is full of promise and juxtaposed
between three peoples, three creeds

Born from a single nomad
promised endless descendants.
Abraham’s sacrifice was curtailed
switched in time for mercy.
