The New Jerusalem
(La Nuova Gerusalemme)
Lyrics by F.A.
Jerusalem, the New Jerusalem.
I have His Words engraved in my heart
not by chance did He descend
as a tiny baby near an olive tree
where today an encounter of love awaits us,
with joy and sorrow, with You, my Lord
and with Mary, Your Mother and mine.
I ponder to Your tears of love
near an olive tree,
the sweat of blood You poured forth for us.
The pain was so harsh, I can feel it in my heart,
but greater was the Love that brought You
to die on the Cross for us.
