What's all the fighting about? English lyrics to "Jerusalem of Gold": The olive trees that stand in silence Upon the hills of time To hear the voices of the city As bells of evening chime. The shofar sounding from the Temple To call the world to prayer A shepherd pauses in the valley And peace is everywhere. Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Forever new, yet forever old My heart will sing your songs of glory, Jerusalem. Jerusalem, Jerusalem, O City with a heart of gold My heart will sing your songs of glory, Jerusalem.
