Zealous Over Zion

Ted Pearce

I am zealous over Zion, I am a jealous God over Zion,

I am zealous over Zion, I will dwell in Jerusalem,

Kineti L’Tzion, Ke El Kana Ani L’Tzion,

Kineti L’Tzion, Shachanti Betoch Yerushalayim

She shall be called The City of Truth

The Mountain of the Lord of Hosts,

Har HaKodesh for thus says the Lord, “I will save my people”,

Old women and men shall sit in the street,

Each one with a staff in their hand

Children will play in the streets of the city.

Joy will be heard once again.

They shall return from the east and the west

To dwell in Jerusalem,

They’ll be my people for I am their God

In truth and in righteousness
