Jerusalem the golden (Bernard of Cluny/John Mason Neale/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Jerusalem the golden.

1. Jerusalem the golden,
  with milk and honey blessed!
beneath thy contemplation
  sink heart and voice oppressed. (PDF - Midi)

2. I know not, O I know not,
  what holy joys are there!
what radiance of glory,
  what light beyond compare!

3. They stand, those halls of Zion,
  conjubilant with song,
and bright with many an angel,
  and all the martyr throng.

4. The Prince is ever in them;
  the daylight is serene:
the pastures of the blessed
  are decked in glorious sheen.

5. There is the throne of David,
  and there, from care released,
the song of them that triumph,
  the shout of them that feast.

6. An they, who, with their Leader,
  have conquered in the fight,
for ever and for ever
  are clad in robes of white!

7. And there the Sole-Begotten
  is Lord in regal state;
he, Judah's mystic Lion,
  he, Lamb immaculate.

8. O fields that know no sorrow!
  O state that fears no strife!
O princely bowers! O land of flowers!
  O realm and home of life!

9. Exult, O dust and ashes!
  the Lord shall be thy part:
his only, his for ever,
  thou shalt be and thou art!

10. Jesus, in mercy bring us
  soon to that land of rest;
who art, with God the Father,
  and Spirit, ever blessed!

John Mason Neale, arranged by Philip Schaff, Christ in Song, 1869, 647-648. Free translation after Bernard of Cluny.
