Over Jerusalem Weep

MP3 Music Playlist: 
Our Lord wept as he looked at Jerusalem just before Holy Week: 
 And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it, 42 saying, “Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43 For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side 44 and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”
1We sing and dance with lilting hearts 2 following you giving us each our harmonic part 3 you give us peace - divinely pure and deep 4 Like a babe in his mom’s arms asleep
1 You give us word and self every day 2 to strengthen and teach us your will and way 3 You give us hope divinely assured 4 eternal life with you divinely secured
1 Love each other as I have loved thee 2 Look to the saints and you will see 3 not counting the cost  this means sacrificially 4 greater in cost in times to be 
1 Hate in word and  deed from the heart 2 will tempt us to join and play a part 3 we may fall and join and be a part 4 but in confession 
You will clean our hearts

1 Withdraw from your work at times each day 2  Come to me to listen to pray 3 I am your best friend and Lord 4 Ask of me what you 
Will and I’ll give you my love and my will
Now we rest in you at peace 2 and work as you did to bring 3 Your Father’s Love to all. 4 As evil’s deceptions rise and confusion grows 5 we pine in joyful hope to be in your glorious victory
1 You show us how to live passionately 2 to be humble and meek
3 to admit that  we are weak 4 and at times like you to weep 
5 as you wept over Jerusalem 6 who would refuse you as her Lord and King



Good Prayer for our day and age.  Saints of Jerusalem, pray for us.


Yes in this time as in other times when a significant number of people reject(ed) the good Lord for whatever reason (ignorance, poor catechesis, poor education, cultural confusion, pride, etc) we the body of Christ should weep as the Lord wept. 


and weep especially for our own ignorance, poor catechesis, poor education, cultural confusion, pride, etc.
