"The Holy City, sacred ballad for voice & piano (or orchestra and chorus, ad" as written by Johannes De Heer and Stephen Adams....
Last night i lay asleeping
There came a dream so fair,
I stood in old Jerusalem
Beside the temple there

I heard the children singing
And ever as they sang,
Methought Jerusalem, Jerusalem!
Hark! how the angels sing,
Hosanna in the highest,
Hosanna to your king!"

And once again the scene was chang'd
New earth there seem'd to be,
I saw the holy city
Beside the tideless sea

The light of god was on its streets
The gates were open wide,
And all who would might enter
And no one was denied.

No need of moon or stars by night,
Or sun to shine by day,
It was the new Jerusalem
That would not pass away

"Jerusalem! Jerusalem
Sing for the night is o'er
Hosanna in the highest
Hosanna for evermore!"
